We would like to extend our thanks the area residents for their patience while the incident was on-going, states S/Sgt. Janelle Shoihet of the BC RCMP. We understand these traffic disruptions can be frustrating, however it is imperative for everyone’s safety that civilians are kept at a safe distance so that police can focus on the dynamic and unfolding situation at hand.
