CHEK says that the home was occupied by a retired couple, who had just sold the residence (it sold on June 17, the day it was listed) and were "downsizing", about to move to another residence in Parksville. It is being investigated as a murder-suicide.

Series of Dumpster Fires

Date: June 30, 2021

File: #21-14652, 14591, 14545, 14544

Over the past two days, the Saanich Police and the Saanich Fire Departments have attended four dumpster fires in Saanich that are currently being investigated as arson and likely related.

On June 28 at 11:25 p.m. a small fire was lit next to a dumpster in the 3200 block of Douglas Street, followed by a fire inside a dumpster 10 minutes later just up the road in the 700 block of Tolmie Avenue.

On June 29 at 2:00 p.m. a fire was lit inside a grease bin in the 3100 block of Tillicum Road.

On June 30 at 2:45 a.m. a dumpster was lit on fire at Colquitz Middle School on Dumeresq Street.

“While all of these fires were contained to the immediate area, the hot and dry weather conditions could have easily helped these fires spread to adjacent structures. Fortunately, other than the bins themselves, no other property damage was noted.”

We encourage the public to be on the lookout for and immediately report any fires they witness by calling 9-1-1. Investigators continue to search for the suspect(s) responsible for these fires, and any information can be submitted to our officers by calling the Saanich Police non-emergency line at 250-475-4321.

Friends shocked after apparent murder-suicide in Parksville

Friends and neighbours are in shock in a Parksville neighbourhood, after the suspicious deaths of two beloved seniors in their home on Tuesday.

“Everybody’s still kind of walking around in a daze because we still can’t, we’re trying to accept it and it’s going to take time,” said Ken.

Friends have identified the victims as 90-year-old Joe Coyne and his 76-year-old wife Shelley Hardisty.
 
“Joe and Shelley were the kind of people you wanted to have in your neighbourhood. They were both kind, helpful, funny, they enjoyed life and a good laugh,” said Carol.

“It’s still a lot of shock and disbelief because they were a large part of our neighbourhood,” said Ken.

The seniors were active members of the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club and known as friendly neighbours who always had the coffee on and a recipe going.

Oak Bay homes targeted for Canadian flag thefts ahead of July 1

Oak Bay Rotary Club flag program chair says about 50 of its flags, some poles, removed from lawns

June 30, 2021

There are plenty of theories about what is motivating thieves to steal dozens of rented Canadian flags from Oak Bay homeowners’ lawns, but the Oak Bay Rotary Club just wants to see them returned.

Joan Peggs is chair of the club’s flag program, which sees subscribers pay a nominal donation for the use of a large flag on a staked flagpole during three national holiday times – Victoria Day, Canada Day and Labour Day.

The program has roughly 600 subscribers around Greater Victoria, but Peggs said all of the estimated 50 or so flags were removed from their locations on private property are in Oak Bay.

This is so disappointing. We have been subscribers for a few years now.  I do research before I donate to any cause and they give back in substantial ways to Our Place, the Native Friendship centre and the list goes on. If the SJW's types would take even 5 minutes out from their busy virtue signalling day, they would see how much good this particular club has done for this community and around the world.

it's been mentioned in another thread (canada day thread) about the statue of captain cook being torn down and tossed into the inner harbour... and it got me thinking... has the queens head (from beacon hill park statue) ever been found? or is this another thing we as Victorians are not to speak about...

Theft of Bicycle July 2, 2021
 

The RCMP at the West Shore detachment are looking for help in identifying the male shown in the pictures.

 

He is the suspect in a stolen bike file.

 

IN20210002335-VGH-Bike-Theft-Occuring-16 IN20210002335-VGH-Bike-Theft-POI-160x200 single-image-e1625007524499-145x200.png

 

The owner of the bike locked it up at around 6.45am just before they went to work at Victoria General Hospital. When they returned at 3pm after their shift had finished, they discovered it had been stolen.

 

The security staff at the hospital reviewed the CCTV for that part of the hospital and saw that at 11.40 the person in the pictures went up to the bike, cut off the lock and rode it away.

 

If you know who this suspect is or where the bike is, please tell us. You will remain anonymous and the culprit won’t!

so regarding Cook.

what we have is the largest, most public act of vandalism in the history of Victoria.

On the one day of the year that police presence is extremely high at the harbour. On the one day per year VicPD has special camera surveillance.

maybe we should defund the police if they can’t solve this crime and charge all the suspects.

What act of vandalism will be next? I see Isitt has disappeared from twitter again. Time for more emails to city council I guess.

The councillor did speak at council regarding this statue some months ago, when he was advised by the City the statue was not under their jurisdiction like the JAM statue was.

The police can only do as they are told. I am sure that the police board isn't in any rush to arrest anyone.

well the statue belongs to the harbour authority. let’s see what they do.

my issue is that most jurisdictions are giving in to the mob. they are “reconsidering” statues torn down by mobs. ie. mob wins.

Langford shooting:

In the midst of Canada Day celebrations, the sounds of gunshots almost blended into the fireworks in one West Shore community.

On July 1, 2021, at 10:45 pm, the West Shore RCMP received a report of possible gunshots in the area of 2800 block of Jacklin Road, Langford BC. Further investigation determined that there had in fact been a shooting, and that an unoccupied parked vehicle nearby was damaged.

At this time is appears that bullets struck both a vehicle and the townhome behind it, said Cst. Jesse Schroeder, of the West Shore RCMP Serious Crime Section, Thankfully no one was injured, but this could easily have been a different story.

Police are asking if anyone saw anything suspicious in the area, or has surveillance footage of the area, to contact the West Shore RCMP General Investigation Section. Also, if you have any knowledge of this incident, please contact the West Shore RCMP at (250) 474-2264 or if you wish to remain anonymous, call CRIME STOPPERS at 1-899-8477 (TIPS)
