A cesspool of garbage

As a mother or father you fear for your childrens' safety on a regular basis, but it's pretty pathetic when your daughter, a young girl of the age 15, can't have a simple paper route in this city without being manhandled and verbally assaulted first

As a mother or father you fear for your childrens' safety on a regular basis, but it's pretty pathetic when your daughter, a young girl of the age 15, can't have a simple paper route in this city without being manhandled and verbally assaulted first thing in the early morning. My daughter was delivering her papers early Saturday morning at 6 a.m. when three male youths came upon her and confronted her with unappropriate overtures and one male actually physically grabbed her. Thankfully this is where it ended, but when will it stop? I am sick and tired of the crime here in our city! Our youth having no respect for anything or anyone, drug dealers, tweekers and prostitutes on every corner and the court system turning a blind eye and doing nothing to help the vitcims. As a result of this incident we put in a call to the RCMP, asking them to patrol the area during the early mornings but in reality... this city is becoming more of a cesspool of garbage.

Fed up,
