The Nelson Police Department says it was “very pleased” with Canada Day festivities in and around Lakeside Park.
“Most of the people taking in the various events were well behaved, which helped create a real family atmosphere for the entire day,” Sgt. Paul Burkart says.
However, one person was arrested for being drunk in public and another for obstructing a police officer for failing to properly identify themself.
There were two drug seizures and six tickets issued for drinking in public and minor in possession of alcohol. The integrated road safety and Counterattack units were also out that evening and issued one 90-day suspension, two three-day prohibitions, seven tickets, and three warnings, while seizing four vehicles.
