Dan McSkimming is running for a councillor position in the City of Fernie.

Q: If elected, how do you plan to address issues of late night disturbances and vandalism in the downtown core?

A: I’m not in favour of a heavy handed approach. Unfortunately, the Police resources are limited and out of our control. The city has a lot of bylaws we simply don’t enforce, we need to start there. The task force being formed, comprised of downtown business folks, residences and citizens at large, can then bring forward recommendations to council. Part of what makes Fernie FERNIE, is that we’re a resort community, and with that comes many challenges.
