Long weekend quiet, say police

Despite hot, sunny weather and a plethora of festivals and events on the long weekend, police didn’t find themselves having to respond to incidents of bad behavior.

“It was really good,” said Oceanside RCMP Sergeant Darrell Robertson. “We had lots of patrols on the beach and there were the festivals, the car show and we had minimal trouble — nothing that came as a result of any festival. It was very nice to come in to on a Monday.”
