Coun­cil­lor urges public to help out

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

NORTH SYD­NEY, N.S. — Re­gional coun­cil­lor Ear­lene MacMullin says ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness is a key as­pect to stop­ping van­dal­ism, not only in the North Syd­ney com­mu­nity, but the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity in gen­eral.

Over the past two weeks, three acts of van­dal­ism have oc­curred in the North Syd­ney com­mu­nity, just min­utes away from each other, caus­ing dam­age to a lo­cal busi­ness, food bank and an ele­men­tary school. “Peo­ple don’t want to re­port things and I un­der­stand that, they’re ner­vous if they call the po­lice that their names will be heard, but noth­ing is too small, if they see some­thing sus­pi­cious they have to re­port it,” said MacMullin.
