With Remembrance Day getting closer to us, more people can be seen with poppies on their jackets. These are of course worn to help support and commemorate veterans who fought in the war many years ago. Many businesses will have donation boxes on display as a way to bring in money to support this cause. Unfortunately, one of the donation boxes was stolen from a Coquitlam Tim Hortons last Friday night, and another this past Tuesday, from a library. Laurie Chapman of the local legion branch said that volunteers will be stepping up the frequency of checking on the boxes between now and Remembrance Day. Police are looking into this further.
This is something we take seriously and, like everybody, we want to make sure that we get to the bottom of this.
At the moment, police are currently going through surveillance footage looking for any sign of the suspect.
