Community Watch & Health/Political meetings

Community Watch – Wednesday Oct 23, 7pm
Health & Rehab and also Political Action on Thursday Oct 24, 7pm

Both meetings at the Scotch Creek Hall, doors open at 6:45.

This week we’ll be having our second meeting for the Community Watch Group on Wednesday at 7pm at the Scotch Creek Hall (doors open at 6:30). The group has been busy getting information on various different flavours of communty watch, from Citizens on Patrol to Rural Crime Watch and others. On Wednesday we’ll be looking at those various options and selecting one that works the best for our North Shuswap.

On Thursday is our first Health & Rehabilitation meeting along with our Political Action group. As I see it right now, the H&R group will be set up to try to make sure that NS residents who are troublemakers have an opportunity to get help. I personally don’t care much about the troublemakers from the coast or wherever, but if we can take care of our own, if they want help, if we can, then we should try.  As well, they may have family here who could use some support.

The Political group will be looking at ways to put pressure on the political people to get more RCMP service and officers into our area. We’ll be workin on the RCMP, our local MP, Greg Kyllo, and our MLA, the jury is out on who that is right now. I have been approached by the Mayor of Salmon Arm to have a discussion with him and my South Shuswap colleague Paul Demenok, regarding this and I think we will be banding together with other CSRD directors to make a big push.

The community needs to get involved to see that something gets done. Come on out and participate. Bring a friend and your special coffee. We’ll chat and make some plans about what we can do.
