CTV is reporting that "Bell Aliant is urging the provincial and federal government to toughen punishments for people who steal copper wire after a theft in Oromocto, N.B., on Saturday morning left around 300 people without any service until late in the evening. The telecom company says this theft is just one of many incidents, as it has experienced more than 115 incidents of vandalism in the province since January 2022."
"The company also reports the number of incidents across the country to be up a staggering 221 per cent year-over-year, and are now calling on the government to increase the fines."
Why is this relevant? Because it directly related to public drug use. Fine's won't solve the problem. Reducing the amount of public drug use will. Whenever drugs are defiantly sold in public violent crime in that area skyrockets. Another reason this matters is because it's part of the WEF's attack on small business. Many years ago my daughter used to be a manager at the Whalley Safeway at Surrey Central. The LPOs and the security guards were constantly fighting with drug addicts stealing cold medicine to make drugs or meat to resell so they could buy drugs.
That Safeway finally shut down and moved to a different location. Prolific theft is an attack on small business.
My daughter mentioned at the time that the drug addicts would regularly break though the asphalt at the side of the parking lot where they knew copper wire was burred and dig up the copper wire. Every time the company would replace it the drug addicts would dig it up again and steal it. No business can function in that kind of an environment.
This is what's happening in New Brunswick. CBC is reporting that "Four people have been arrested after a string of copper-wire thefts in Fredericton and Oromocto, RCMP said Monday.
Since September, the thefts in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas have amounted to more than $1.4 million in losses suffered by households, businesses and government departments, the RCMP said in a news release.
The repeated thefts have left residents without some TV, internet and phone services for varying periods of time. Bell Aliant said the system had suffered four significant outages since September and 40 instances of vandalism."
So a couple of repeat offenders were caught. What's going to happen? Absolutely nothing. The problem with our judicial system is the more crime a repeat offender commits, the less prison time they serve. It is completely backwards. I'm not saying we should adapt a US three strikes you're out system. I'm saying repeat offenses should be progressive. Everyone needs to face consequences in life. When you remove consequences, you create monsters.
All of this crime directly relates to the promotion of public drug use. The government is intentionally creating a problem to justify their insane WEF solution.
Don MacPherson runs a substack about crime in New Brunswick. This wire theft is related to the torture and murder of Brandon Donelan because it's tied to drugs. Many murders are related to the drug trade.
