One thing that’s has never stopped panic buying, is politicians telling us to “stop panic buying, in order to stave off shortages”.

Didn’t stop Horgan today though.

It's very hard to get around. I'm using more gas just to do the basic errands.

A little over 9 years ago we elected a mayor that doesn’t approve of you “driving around”.

Next time ride your bike.

It really has to be experienced in person to understand the true level of insanity the CoV has reached.

I spent a couple days hanging out with friends and wandering downtown, I miss it that’s for sure! Especially the food options. No issues parking anywhere, everywhere we went it was pretty busy too.

Man found in car that went into ocean had been arrested hours earlier; police watchdog investigating

B.C.’s police watchdog is investigating after the death of a man whose car went into the ocean near Victoria airport hours after he was arrested and released by West Shore RCMP.

The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. says the man, who has not been identified, was arrested around 3 p.m. Saturday, according to information provided by the RCMP. He was released around 7 p.m. and about 20 minutes later he was reported to have breached his conditions.

West Shore RCMP communicated with the man about the breach, and he was not taken into custody.

Wonder what he was arrested for.

My guess would be something domestic. And the breach was contacting the other party, contrary to the release conditions.

That happens often.

19 years old. Tragic.
