|It's an encouraging sign for the Portage RCMP. Constable Dave Spakowski says they received few calls throughout the weekend. The holiday weekend meant many were out and about taking part in various activities, Spakowski says that played a role in how many calls they received.
In total the RCMP received a total of 154 calls for service. There were two houses and garden sheds broken in to, one bicycle theft as well as two mischief of property reports over the long weekend. Local fire officials say they also experienced very few calls over the holiday long weekend.
