Why Protesters Can Block the Highway

DriveSmartBC LogoWhen I was posted in the Okanagan in the 1990s I was answering phones in the detachment dispatch office.

He expressed the opinion that if he did that the police would arrive quickly and if he did not move he would be removed.I couldn't argue his point.

Firefighter Volunteers Needed

FirefighterOpen Practice/Training Nights – February 24 and 27, 2020

The Parksville and Qualicum Beach fire departments are now recruiting for 2020 and residents considering applying are welcome to attend a regular practice night in their area. This is an opportunity to see firsthand what is involved in training to be a volunteer on-call firefighter - to observe a practice, ask questions and speak with officers and members.
