Petition being circulated for road repairs and ditch cleanup

community news happening around the Canim Lake area

Dear Canimites

The drone of lawnmowers echoes through the valley as residents trim the exuberant grass liberated by recent rains. The not-so-inclined fishers relax as they troll the lakes seeking more exciting prey.

Road woes

Mila Doksansky and Valerie Greve of Canim Lake Estates have been circulating a petition asking Interior Roads to deal with pavement and ditches in the suburb.

Areas of asphalt are crumbling, ditches are filling with debris and the road slumps badly over some water system feed lines. Residents believe this deterioration presents safety concerns.

Phil Doddridge of Interior Roads is handling the case. There will be an opportunity to speak face-to-face with him and a representative of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure at the Cariboo Regional District Area H meeting set for July 18 at the Forest Grove Community Hall from 4 to 7 p.m.

 

COPS

The Canim COPS group is appealing to residents for donations to assist its community patrols.

It is a unit of South Cariboo Citizens on Patrol (SCCOP) and operates in conjunction with the RCMP. Last year, the group made 63 patrols at the expense of $1,100 in fuel.

Members have sent letters to residents requesting donations. If you do not receive a letter but are interested in contributing, or if you are interested in involvement with the group, contact COPS captain Margo Wagner at 250-397-0016.

 

Pita Jack opens

Canim Lake entrepreneur Gerhard Loeffeler has opened a new eatery on Alder Avenue in 100 Mile House called Pita Jack.

You can buy donairs and pitas stuffed with lamb, beef or chicken and whatever variety of vegetables and condiments you choose. Italian-style pizza with a thin crispy crust is also a specialty, and for this Gerhard brought in special ovens.

It must be tasty and it certainly has been popular, according to Gerhard.

That’s all for now. Until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings.
