    D.A.R.E. - What I Feel About the DARE Program Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
    Thursday, August 21 2003 @ 11:47 AM GMT
    Contributed by: WebMaster

    General News I think if the DARE program was taught a long time ago, drugs might not be used so much by kids. I think nothing but positive thoughts for DARE Canada. There are a lot of drugs and violence these days, and it’s probably very easy to get caught up in those things. I will never get caught up in drugs and violence because DARE has changed me in a way I can’t go back to. I didn’t realize the harm in those drugs until I took DARE, and I’m thankful I did. Staying drug-free will help keep me out of trouble, make me a better, friendlier, out-going person. It will keep me away from getting health problems when I’m older. I think using drugs is a disgusting, nasty habit that I will never get into. NEVER. That is my promise to me. DARE has made me happy and more comfortable with the person that is staring back at me in the mirror every day.

    Crime Stoppers
    NB Liquor

    Don’t buy for minors!

    Crime Stoppers and the New Brunswick Liquor Corporation
    would like to draw your attention to a persistent problem in this province
    which involves the acquisition or sale of alcohol to minors.

        It is a serious offence under the Liquor
    Control Act to buy alcoholic beverages for a person under 19 years of age. You
    can be fined up to $1000 and/or face imprisonment for up to six months. Like
    impaired driving, supplying minors with alcohol is socially unacceptable and
    it’s illegal.

        Don’t be persuaded to buy alcohol for
    minors, thinking you’re doing someone a favour, the real favour is not to buy
    for, or sell alcohol to our teenagers, our children.

        Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2000 for
    information that leads to the arrest of individuals procuring or selling
    alcohol to minors. Call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. That’s
    1-800-222-8477. We want your information, not your name. Call now!

    Crime Stoppers II
    Hit and Run

    King George Highway

       Crime Stoppers and the Miramichi Police Force are on the look-out for the driver
    of a hit and run vehicle who struck a pedestrian on the corner of King
    George and Old King George Highway, located in Miramichi, New Brunswick.

        On Sunday, 9 September 2001 at approximately 2:40 a.m. a
    woman was crossing the highway. When she had reached the centerline, a taxi
    approached, stopped and inquired if the lady needed a drive. As she was
    speaking with the taxi driver she suddenly looked up and saw a vehicle
    speeding towards her. The vehicle struck the woman, which caused
    considerable injuries to her arm. The vehicle sped away, and is believed to
    be a dark coloured, late model Sunbird or Grand Am. The side mirror of the
    vehicle was found at the scene.

        If you have information concerning this hit and run, please
    call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, that’s 1-800-222-8477. If your
    information leads to an arrest you qualify for a cash award of up to $2000.
    Call now.
