City Council faced a full day on Monday March 12 with two public meetings and an in-camera meeting between.

In the morning they spent 2 hours in the Committee Of The Whole meeting where they discussed:

They did have an in-camera meeting afterwards but of course we weren’t allowed to be present or record that meeting.

In the evening the meeting ran only a few minutes less than the morning meeting.

The matters they discussed were

Live Streaming of Council Meetings

Since the beginning of the year we’ve been live streaming the council meetings as they happen. Since the live streams suffer from the vagaries of live production (things such as not starting on time, technical issues, audio issues) we still provide the ‘produced’ versions above.

When the council meetings are happening you can watch them in a number of ways:

Altercation Leads To Stabbing

March 4th, 2018

Shortly before 4:00 p.m. Grand Forks RCMP members responded to a complaint of an Assault.

The subsequent investigation revealed that there was an altercation involving several males and during the altercation one male was stabbed. The matter is still under investigation and RCMP will be recommending charges. The male that was stabbed suffered non-life threatening injuries.

This was not a random attack, there is no danger to the public.

If you have any information regarding these crimes please call Cst. Corey Flodell (investigator) at 250-442-8288. If you wish to remain anonymous you can call crime stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS)

Discarded computer tablets found

News Release

File Number: 18-1043

On March 5, 2018 Trail and Greater District RCMP recovered computer tablets.

Police were called by a concerned citizen who located four electronic devices (tablets) that were partially buried in the snow in East Trail. The tablets are from different manufacturers and are different sizes and the complainant felt that they may be stolen.

Due to the amount of battery life left in some of the devices, police feel that the devices were not left in the snow for very long, however, there are no recent reports of the theft of any of these types of devices.

If you have any information regarding this incident or have had one of these types of devices go missing, please contact the Trail RCMP at 250-364-2566.

Thank you,

Fake US Currency circulating around Trail

Trail RCMP have recovered counterfeit US bills from several businesses and banks around the City. $1, $10, $20 and $50 US bills have been passed at several businesses within the last week.

The bills are slightly smaller, have poor colouring and do not feel like real currency paper.

Security features such as security thread, watermarks, and colour shifting numbers are not present on these fake bills. Several Trail residents have been identified making purchases with the fake bills. Police are investigating.

Trail RCMP ask the public to be extra diligent when accepting US cash and notify the detachment at 250-364-2566 if someone tries to use this counterfeit currency.
