Wiarton Echo - - NEWS -

It was a busy week­end for the Bruce Penin­sula On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice (OPP).

Po­lice re­sponded to over 200 calls for ser­vice on the Canada Day week­end, with 94 of the calls re­ceived on July 1.

Po­lice re­ceived 42 traf­fic com­plaints, in­clud­ing for speed­ing, un­safe pass­ing and dis­tracted driv­ing. Three driv­ers were charged for stunt driv­ing more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. Those charged in­cluded a 25-year-old man from London, a 28-year-old man from Eto­bi­coke and a 22-year-old man from Bramp­ton. Their driver’s li­cences were sus­pended for seven days and their ve­hi­cles were im­pounded, Bruce Penin­sula OPP said in a news re­lease.

On Satur­day and Sun­day, po­lice also re­ceived three re­ports of miss­ing chil­dren at Sauble Beach. With the help of the pub­lic, the three chil­dren were all lo­cated a short time af­ter go­ing miss­ing and were re­united with their par­ents, the news re­lease said.

Area beaches were packed over the week­end with an ex­treme heat warn­ing in ef­fect that led to record tem­per­a­tures. Po­lice are also re­mind­ing peo­ple that al­co­hol con­sump­tion is not per­mit­ted on pub­lic beaches and is an of­fence un­der the Liquor Li­cence Act. They also warn that al­co­hol and wa­ter ac­tiv­i­ties don’t mix and ask that peo­ple drink re­spon­si­bly.
