Didn't we have a case like this where master keys to those boxes went missing/stolen a few years ago?

Something along these lines has happened before, yes.

Edit: I'm not here to speculate on cause or blame. I just want people to be aware. Cheers.

I heard about a serious assault last night at 10:30m on Broughton and Douglas. Anyone know anything about it?

One man is in custody and a 20-year-old man remains in hospital after being punched Saturday night downtown, apparently after asking someone for a cigarette.

 

VicPD are still piecing together what happened at the corner of Douglas and Broughton streets around 10:30 p.m. that led to an assault which ended with one man taken away by paramedics.

Smoking IS dangerous to one's health.

Has this master key in the fire box theft issue been confirmed by anybody from the Fire Department or the COV in an official capacity yet?

 

I'm not seeing any reference to it anywhere but in this thread, which seems a bit odd for a situation that apparently affects over 1000 downtown businesses.

To be clear, the figure I was given was for 1100 properties in general.

I doubt this will make the news, in any case, but it was telling to see that the key compartments had been removed from all the downtown buildings so equipped that I checked out over the weekend.

The fire box core/key is missing from our building in Vic West as well... property management is aware of it, but unsure if the FD removed it themselves.  Either way, its only a main entry door key, not a master key with suite access.  l would guess there is something that prevents them from putting a true master key with access to all suites is such a box...

Master keys were stolen/misused in 2012 and 2015.

I've just heard the police have apprehended an individual in connection to this, however it's believed they weren't working alone. Regardless, I'll have a shiny new building key shortly....
