Chemainus should have detachment

It seems ridiculous that Chemainus does not have either an RCMP detachment or sub-station in the town.

Gibsons, which has a similar population, has had a detachment for many years. In fact, a few years ago, a brand new building was erected for that purpose. Sechelt, their main detachment is also about the same distance as Duncan is to Chemainus.

Why are federal and municipal taxes being allocated to secure one town’s safety but ignoring another’s? All the taxpayers in Chemainus should be furious that the citizens’ safety and security is being disregarded for some reason. Who should be advocating for our rights?
