Crime a top issue at All Candidates Forum

 Although the city has not yet made a decision on whether or not to enact a curfew for local youth, at least one local resident has come out against the proposal.

 

When discussing the issue of crime at Tuesday night’s All Candidates forum, Lantz described the current council’s curfew proposal as “simplistic” and advocated better communication with RCMP. He also says the community should look to other, less conventional solutions, such as citizen patrols and more activities for youth, in order to reduce crime rates.

However, Eglinski said he’s pleased with the city’s current efforts to prevent crime, which include lobbying for additional RCMP officers and restructuring the local police force to include a specialized street crime unit.

The forum, which was held at the Northern Grand Hotel, saw both mayoral candidates and all eleven councilor candidates field questions from a standing-room-only crowd. It’s the last scheduled forum for the candidates, who will now have to wait until voters have their say on November 15th.
