On­tario po­lice force call­ing for the pipes

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

NI­A­GARA FALLS, Ont. — A south­ern On­tario po­lice force has de­clared a “bag­pipe amnesty.” Ni­a­gara re­gional po­lice are call­ing on any­one with “an old set of bag­pipes ly­ing un­der a bed or tucked away in the at­tic” to turn them in.

The force says the NRPS Pipe Band is run­ning out of bag­pipes and is hop­ing the public can help.

It says its on­go­ing youth teach­ing pro­gram — called “The Big NOISE” — has a ros­ter of young pipers in need of in­stru­ments.

Po­lice say it’s time to get the un­used bag­pipes back in ac­tion and the amnesty will give new life to old pipes.

Any­one with un­used pipes is urged to call Ni­a­gara re­gion po­lice to “dis­cuss in de­tail the good things” that can be done with them.
