Look before backing

There were no injuries and just minor damage as the result of a two-vehicle vehicle motor vehicle incident on Clearwater Valley Road. The driver of the first vehicle stopped to look at a park map but went too far and so backed up to get a better look.

Unfortunately a vehicle was behind him and he backed into it.

Beware of scams

Clearwater RCMP wants to remind everyone of online scams. Please DO NOT provide personal information to people that you do not know or send money for gifts/packages. These people can be very persistent and will try to pressure you into making decisions before you can think about it.

If you even think that it could be a scam, hang up. You can call the anti-fraud line at 1-888-495-8501 Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. or 24/7 at the website (www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca) and select “Report an incident.”

Three days suspension

Clearwater RCMP were notified of a possible impaired driver in Clearwater. An on-shift member located the vehicle and conducted an impaired investigation.

The result was that the driver blew a warn, which resulted in his license being suspended for three days and the vehicle being impounded for three days.

Bears in the neighborhood

Clearwater RCMP have received a few calls regarding black bears in the area but there have been no negative interactions with people. If you see a bear in the area, you can call Conservation at 250-674-3722.

Include information

Clearwater RCMP responded to 13 reports of erratic drivers during the last week. Police would like to remind you that when calling in traffic complaints that the more information the better to help police locate the vehicle.

Useful information includes vehicle make, color, plate and direction of travel, as well as where the incident took place and anything else that would help police.

Killer clowns

Clearwater RCMP have responded to two calls for “killer clowns” during the nights standing on or beside roadways. This appears to be a new trend on Youtube and social media.

Reminders to drivers

The section of Old North Thompson Highway in front of Dutch Lake Park has a new speed limit of 30 km/hr. It has been designated as a playground zone. The resultant fine is minimum $196.


As of Oct. 1, you must have removed summer tires and replaced them with either winter tires (snow flake and mountain symbols) or with mud and snow tires (M&S).
