RCMP hosting pair of community events Saturday

Safety Bear willl be a “busy beaver”

As bears are busy eating and foraging for the winter, the Comox Valley RCMP is calling on its own busy bruin for assistance on Saturday, Nov. 25. Safety Bear will be working a full shift at two community events, which include eating and foraging.

The shift will start at 8 a.m., when the eating begins. Safety Bear will attend the Courtenay Legion (367 Cliffe Ave.) for the annual Comox Valley CrimeStoppers Breakfast with Santa. Come down to see Safety Bear, who will be handing out stickers, activity books and other fun items. There will be RCMP members in red serge working alongside Safety Bear. Children will have the chance to enter their names for draws and see Santa Claus. This event runs until 11 a.m.

The next duty for Safety Bear will pull on foraging skills. At 1 p.m., you will find Safety Bear assisting with a Cram the Cruiser event at the Real Canadian Superstore at 757 Ryan Rd. in Courtenay. When not busy meeting with kids, Safety Bear will be foraging for food to cram into a police cruiser, or accepting cash donations on behalf of Superstore for the Comox Valley Food Bank. The event runs until 5 p.m. There will be a hot dog barbecue, raffle and tours of a police cruiser.

“Every member of the RCMP brings a unique skill set when they join,” said Const. Rob Gardner, Comox Valley RCMP community policing liaison. “To have Safety Bear within our ranks and out assisting our community is awesome.”
