Backcountry is one of British Columbia’s largest hunting, fishing and outdoor supply stores. The Fort St. John area is home to some of the best hunting and fishing opportunities in North America and often referred to as “The Serengeti of the North”.

RCMP back on Bikes for the Summer

The Fort St. John RCMP Bike Patrol is back for another year. Cpl. Kate Bamber and Cst. Josh Martyn will be conducting patrols of the City by bicycle.

“The Bike Patrol Unit has been very successful in the past and we are very pleased to offer this service to the City this summer” says Cpl Kate Bamber.

On top of that, the RCMP will once again be running their Positive Ticket Program.  The program rewards youth if they are caught doing something right.  Cpl. Bamber and Cst. Martyn will be issuing “tickets” to youth for positive behaviour such as wearing their helmets while cycling or skateboarding. The tickets are actually coupons for free activities and treats from local businesses.

The following businesses have donated to help the Bike Patrol this year:

Wendy’s
Subway
Shell
Quiznos
A&W
McDonalds
Booster Juice
Dairy Queen
Mac’s
Fort Bowling Lanes
North Peace Leisure Pool
Aurora Centre Cinema

Thank-you to Cliffside Printing for donating the printing of the tickets.
