SAFETY

Daughter of slain hockey mom calls grassroots efforts to revitalize Newton 'silver lining' to tragedy

The Newton Business Improvement Association is also frustrated by the lack of development, but that hasn’t stopped the organization from initiating several projects aimed at revitalizing the community and reducing crime, said director Philip Aguirre.

Formed a few months after Paskall’s death, the BIA runs a used-needle program, removes graffiti and garbage, collects shopping carts, runs a bike registry, conducts its own annual homeless count and organizes youth safety walks, taking teens from the local high school on tours to engage them in the community and listen to their ideas on making it safer.

No call is too small.

Report shoplifting to RCMP Non-Emergency (604-599-0502) or Community Safety Patrol (778-873-0435).
