• Scrape those windows! Hoping the windows will defrost on the way or hoping the snow will blow off is a sure way to cause a collision. Frost reflects glare from the sun and makes it impossible to see. Ensure you scrape the frost and allow your windows to clear before venturing out.
Community policing events
The RCMP will be hosting a hockey game against the Ascension Collegiate high school team on Feb. 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts. As part of the Bay Roberts Winter Carnival events at the stadium, RCMP members are looking forward to hosting the event. We are hoping for special guests, fun-filled intermissions, and raising some funds for the Bay Roberts Citizens Crime Prevention Committee. Cost is minimal — only $1 — and a donation of a non-perishable food item for the food bank.
