NEW WEST POLICE ISSUE BREAK & ENTER ALERT
New West Police have issued a notice that break and entry crimes are on the increase. Whether condo units or parking areas, criminals are posing as 'residents' to gain entry.
Led by the forward-thinking strata council of LAGUNA LANDING, the QCB members who represent all strata complexes in the Quayside area have determined that the entire community needs to explore the logistics of Charging Stations for Electric vehicles. Over the next several months, many avenues will be reviewed to see if providing such stations in each building is feasible going forward. The QCB will also find multi-governmental sourses of funding to assist in related expenses.

BOSA & DEGELDER
The pounding of pylons from both the Bosa and Degelder developments are testing the patience of area condo complexes. This is especially true for those who live in the adjacent Westminster Landing co-op housing. These residents, who have been inundated with the relentless installation of the pylon at the Bosa Development, now have to prepare for the same sound scape from across the road with the Degelder development. The best thing? Everyone knows that it is a short term pain for a hopeful long term gain.
WILL QUAYSIDE LOOSE ITS IDENTITY?
While the debate whether to include a tin solider lingers on, the QCB encourages you to have your say on what may end up being the new name for your New West home. Contact your councillors with this link.

Given the high number of animals and animal lovers on the Boardwalk and Promenade at the Quay, it is important to keep you informed of Ms. Bourque. This convicted Animal Killer, and resident of New West, has been granted day passes - unsupervised. She is entitled to two hours per day. Ms. Bourque has been deemed a “high-risk violent offender” by the Corrections Branch after being convicted in 2013 of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal, killing or injuring an animal and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
The Ministry of Justice, Corrections Branch has advised through a public notification today that Ms. Bourque “has an escalating criminal history, has offended violently against both people and animals and is considered a high risk to re-offend.”
