Clearwater Canoe Regatta

On Sept. 8, Clearwater residents took part in the annual Canoe Regatta at Dutch Lake Beach. Clearwater RCMP attended the event and competed in the triathlon in an attempted to win first place. The competition including running, biking and canoeing.

Clearwater RCMP did not win first place in this event, however, were able to take a victory away from the Clearwater Fire Department during the tug-a-war competition.

Clearwater RCMP report that no major incidents occurred during the regatta and would like to thank the community for a wonderful event.


On Sept. 11, Clearwater RCMP were notified of a break and enter into a residence in Birch Island. Police attended the home and immediately realized that the house had been heavily vandalized. Electronics were smashed, furniture was ruined and windows were broken. Several fire extinguishers were discharged inside the home as well. The majority of the property inside the home was damaged and destroyed.

Clearwater RCMP received another file of a break and enter into a residence in the Blackpool. Someone known to the residents was making repairs to the home, when they noticed that drywall mud had been thrown onto the floor. Investigations into both of these occurrences are under way.

If anyone has any information regarding this break in and vandalism, please contact Clearwater RCMP.

Abandoned vehicle

On Sept. 12, Clearwater RCMP was informed of an abandoned vehicle in the Little Fort Husky’s parking lot. Police notified the registered owner of the vehicle, who was surprised because they had sold and transferred the vehicle out of their name.

The original owner did not complete the transfer documentation properly by taking the paperwork to the motor vehicle branch to be verified and stamped. Since the vehicle was still registered in their name, the original owner is still responsible for that vehicle.


The owner had the vehicle towed back to their residence.
