I have been a resident of Stettler for 15 years and am very concerned about where Stettler is heading.
We have lost too many loved ones. What, as citizens in Stettler, can we do?
Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer; however, it takes a group to stand up and fight.
Stettlerites have to band together and help the RCMP do their jobs more efficiently.
The RCMP are restricted by policies, paper work and short staffing.
We, as citizens of Stettler, must inform the RCMP of wrongful doers.
Stand up and say, “Enough!”
The only way the situation will change is if we no longer tolerate drunk driving, vandalism, breaking and entering, abuse of individuals, theft at our retail businesses, automobile theft, and all the related drug and alcohol offences.
Our family members are more valuable than that. If we allow these offences to occur in our community, we will no longer have a community to call home.
I do not understand why society has allowed individuals to continue to take from those who have worked extremely hard.
I plead for your help to make Stettler a safer place.
Why not join Victim Services or Citizens on Patrol?
Lend a helping hand for those families who are struggling. Sometimes Alberta’s resources have failed them, or they are unaware that they exist.
Demand more preventive programs in our community.
Be aware of who your children’s friends are.
Assist youth in finding positive supervised activities.
Make positive community events outnumber the negative.
Make this occur in action, as well as in conversation.
Don’t ignore, do!
Make the community stronger; unite! Make this a requirement of our new mayor this coming election.
We have to start somewhere. We want a community we can raise our families in!
