That’s not a solution that’s an evasion.
How about instead the city approach the RCMP to coordinate a effective patrol schedule through the carnival. The carnival isn’t always the problem. The last two fights I seen at the carnival were caused by local punks with needed their attitudes adjusted in the first place. Way back when one of our esteemed youth shot his mouth to a much older carny, who told him to shut up at which point our local nailed the carny in the face…long story short after his bounced off the pavement he pulled a knife and THEN all hell broke loose. Sometimes just the possibility of RCMP presence can diffuse a situation before it starts. It’d probably cut down on all STONED kids hangin out doing just…pure winner stuff.
But our GOOD children, our smaller children shouldn’t be made to suffer one less bit of good, clean and innocent excitement to be had in Rupert.
