At Tuesday’s council meeting OPP member Jason Younan informed council that crime has soared in Wingham 25%. Apparently this is due to the newcomers to the area, mostly drug addicts and criminals drawn by the lure of free safe use supplies, free food, free laundry, unlocked homes, and unprotected children roaming the streets. These criminals are stealing so much from local businesses some are closing for financial or safety reasons.
Town council, St. Paul’s United Church & the United Way are responsible for the latest spike in crime and downward spiral, due to their sponsoring of the Insidious Shit, Shower & Shoot-up facilities in the church basement. So Insidious, the doors are even painted red as a warning, much like the movie Insidious.
The OPP are begging for space on Josephine St. and asked council if they had any available, even though the OPP just sold their building on Bristol Terrace. The OPP warned they are barely competent, and that multiple door codes and keys have officers struggling and setting off alarms in space they use, creating a myriad of problems.
Younan bragged about their foot patrols in Wingham and the fact they have done 41.5 hours of patrol during the first 32 weeks of the year. That’s an average of 5 minutes a day for two people, it seems even the OPP afraid to walk the streets.
