Chances are you’ll be seeing a lot of police cars this weekend. RCMP Cbl Tracy Wolbeck says they will be enforcing their zero tolerance policy.
“May long weekend is typically the Upper Fraser Valley’s busiest long weekend of the year, so we just want to remind people that our seasonal policing unit is up and running. We’re going to be on the water, we’re going to be on the beaches, we’re going to be in the recreation areas. We just want people to abide by all the laws so that everyone can have fun, and we don’t want it to be a surprise to people that we’re out there and we’re enforcing.”
That means any liquor seizures will be dumped on the spot and traffic enforcement is being stepped up. She’s also reminding anyone out on the lakes or rivers to wear a life jacket, as we’ve seen a number of drownings in recent years.
Also, don’t forget that the Coastal Fire Centre has open fire restrictions in place as of today, so campfires at all BC Parks and crown land have to be kept to no larger than 2 metres in diameter, and be sure to put the fire completely out when you’re done.
