Postal Protest

About 150 people were at the Oakhill Fire Hall last night at a meeting hosted by the Municipality of Lunenburg to discuss Canada Post's rural mailbox review. Mayor Don Downe says it's a federal issue but Council is advocating on behalf of its residents. Downe says it was delinquent of Canada Post not to attend last night's meeting to hear the residents concerns. Union representatives were in attendance at last nights meeting along with M-P Gerald Keddy and M-L-A's Pam Birdsall, Gary Ramey and Vicki Conrad.

Lock Your Car

Another reminder to keep your vehicles locked. Over the long weekend, on the night of Saturday September 5th or the early morning hours of September 6th a number of vehicles parked in the Glen Allan subdivision were entered. The vehicles were rummaged through and various personal items and change were taken. Police are also looking into an incident from late last month. Sometime between 11 p.m. August 26th and 7 a.m. August 27th, a Ford Ranger was entered and a number of items including a quantity of change was stolen from the unlocked vehicle. Police are also looking out for a red Sport Tech Mountain bike taken from a yard on Desbrisay Drive in the overnight hours of September 6th.
