Arrests, tickets, and warnings follow May Long enforcement initiative…

TERRACE, BC: If the message wasn’t clear before, there was no mistaking it after the May Long weekend: irresponsible and disruptive behaviour won’t be tolerated at Terrace recreation sites.

“The joint-enforcement initiative primarily focused on the Lakelse Lake Furlong Bay Campground, as well as recreation sites in the West Kalum Forest Service Road area.
