Coffee shop verdict

The coffee shop talk lately is about brazen thefts from industrial properties. It appears to be a thriving industry. That, and smash-and-grab ATM heists seem to be going on at a professional level, which suggests organized criminals are involved.

Local thieves are mostly motivated by a need for drug money – or so the RCMP suggest. Take drugs out of the picture and a lot of theft would disappear.

So there’s the dilemma. What do you do about drugs? Organized criminals are definitely behind that; they are profiting hugely and society continues to suffer for it.

The verdict from the coffee shop: ‘Somebody’s going to get shot.’
