Quotes

"We are not taking sides," he told The NEWS Tuesday in an e-mail. "We are a non-advocacy research group and will be providing science to the topic."

"This is a wonderful initiative and were hoping to not only see the cruiser crammed but over flowing" said Const. Gary O'Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman
