The Tofino RCMP police officers have been very impressed as of late with the noted increase of cyclists displaying proper bicycle head lights while cycling at night. The police officers have also noted that many cyclists have a head light, but not a tail light. It is a Provincial Statute requirement that cyclists have front and tail bicycle lights when cycling at night. It also makes good sense from a safety perspective.
Well, to contribute to a solution to this paradox, the Tofino RCMP have teamed up with Marc from TOF City Cycles and acquired twenty-five (25) bicycle tail lights. Marc and the Tofino RCMP will be installing these lights on Tofino cyclist bicycles on Friday, April 19, 2013, from Noon to 1:30 PM at the Tofino RCMP parking lot (detachment garage in rear if the weather is poor). First come, first served.
This offer is limited to District of Tofino residents who have a bicycle and periodically cycle at night.
Please contact Cpl Andrew Waddell at the Tofino RCMP (P 250.725.3242) should more information be required.
The mean-spirited firing of long time District of Tofino employee Sally Mole has cost the taxpayer more than $90,000.00 .Please ask your councillors if they think this is good value ? Since the firing or restructuring , two former Parks and Rec staff have advanced their positions and the District is hiring more staff for the former Parks and Rec Dept, so where are the savings ? This amount is just for severance never mind a wrongful dismissal lawsuit.Shameful !! Please note that this took place under the watch of former Mayor Perry Schmunk and former CAO Braden Smith.For what it's worth things seem to much better without them.......
