There is a reason I waited until my mid-20s to get a licence. I was self-aware enough to know I was an idiot and would end up with ridiculous insurance rates.

 

Too many rush in (especially in Alberta where you can get your L at 14) and then become dependent on a car for their entire adult lives. Nothing like an IKEA trip via public transit to build character... though I could've done without the three kilometer hike with a bookcase on my back at the end.

A wooden-bear carving stolen early Monday from a Chemainus ice-cream store turned up on a local forestry road — along with a note of apology.

 

A man working in the area came across the carving, worth an estimated $4,000, on Tuesday morning, said North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Const. Pam Bolton.

 

The note said: “I am so sorry for taking the bear.”

 

It is now back where it belongs at Baby Bear’s Ice Cream Shoppe.

 

Police continue to work to find out who committed the theft, Bolton said. Forensic officers have been at the scene.

Oh for sure, I'm not saying all young drivers are bad. But all young/new drivers share one thing in common whether they like it or not: inexperience.

 

You don't get to play in the Superbowl because you've learned how to throw a football and are a good sport on the team, is what I'm saying.

 

So you just buy your way in?  Because if only entitled rich kids can afford insurance then that's all that you will have on the road.  What was the young lady driving again? A Hyundai...?

unless police have a suspect in custody and a a signed confession that matches the evidence i find it very hard to believe that releasing the victim's name would not possibly in some way help the case.

 

 

 

 

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit is leading the murder investigation, assisted by West Shore RCMP. The victim’s name has not been released.

 

 

“That’s not uncommon for murder investigations,” West Shore RCMP spokeswoman Const. Nancy Saggar said on Tuesday. “The only reason to release someone’s name is if police believe it will further their investigation. But if there’s no investigational need to do it, then we’re bound by privacy laws to withhold the name.”

“That’s not uncommon for murder investigations,”

 

 

that's just plain incorrect.  almost all murder victims have their name released. it's extremely rare to not do so.

Perfect, there'll be more scrutiny on those entitled rich kids as they'll stand out.

 

But in all seriousness, insurance rates are meant to reflect risk. They're not just a magical number pulled out of thin air. Young drivers are exhibiting terrible behaviours on our roads and unless there are measures to counteract that before a tragedy happens they'll carry those behaviours into their adult years. This is not good. I see middle-aged moms and dads tailgating or racing down residential streets only to sit at a red light down the block.

An assault has taken place in the downtown core, a man has been attacked with someone wearing brass knuckles. Police had nobody to send, but then one unit became available just in time.

Actual brass is rare. Mostly decorative items and shell casings. Maybe some were made with leftover melted scrap from munitions. Otherwise, plain old steel or cast iron is cheaper and easier.

 

I suspect "brass" is just what they called them.

 

I once found a knuckle knife hidden downtown. I threw it away.

Kath said her son had gone to Calgary to pick up some parts for a vehicle, met up with friends while he was there and went hunting.

Geordie suffered a gunshot wound and died, despite first-aid efforts.

Hunting? In the winter. In Alberta?

Anyways, more people die or are injured due to accidents with firearms than murders with firearms in Canada. And yet we’re going to ban a bunch of firearms because they look a certain way and people who have no idea what they’re talking about call then an assault rifle that they think is used solely for killing people.

Firearm And Fentanyl Seized In Strike Force Operation

 

Victoria, BC – Strike Force officers seized a firearm with ammunition, cash, and drugs, including fentanyl, after an investigation which involved locations in Victoria and Sidney. Three men were arrested.

 

On January 23, 2020, Strike Force officers, with the assistance of the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team (GVERT), arrested three men in the 600-block of Pandora Avenue. Two of the men were found to be in possession of drugs. One of the men was a federal parolee who had past convictions for violent offences. No one was injured.

 

Subsequently, Strike Force and GVERT officers executed search warrants at three separate locations. These locations included a suite in a multi-unit residential building in the 2600-block of Graham Street, a hotel room in Victoria, and a business in Sidney. In addition, investigators searched two vehicles associated to the suspects.

 

Strike Force officers located a firearm with ammunition and a considerable amount of fentanyl, cocaine, and cash in their search of the suite in the 2600-block of Graham Street. The search of the hotel room in Victoria yielded more cocaine and cash. At the business in Sidney, Strike Force officers located more drugs, cash, and evidence of a sophisticated drug production site.

 

Investigators seized the two vehicles associated to the suspects. One vehicle is being considered for Civil Forfeiture.

 

No charges have been sworn. This file remains under investigation.
