LET’S TALK about crime, drugs, shootings, sex and Kamloops. Actually, forget the sex part as I just tossed that into the mix to get your attention.
You see, we had another shooting in Kamloops this past weekend and while there is no official statement linking it to drugs, the number of specialized RCMP investigative units involved in the case suggests it is a strong possibility.
Over the weekend, Mayor Ken Christian spoke out on the matter and as CFJC’s Vanessa Ybara reported http://cfjctoday.com/article/595912/mayor-christian on Sunday, Mr. Christian is concerned about the spike in serious crimes. While speaking highly of the efforts of local RCMP, Christian added, “…so we have to make sure we as a province do everything we can to interrupt the drug trade.”
