POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 23 PANS in the community Islanders fans are being asked to get their teddy bears ready. The Charlottetown Islanders’ annual teddy bear toss game will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12 as the team takes on the Drummondville Voltigeurs at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown. Fans are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal to the game and send them flying to the ice after the first Islanders’ goal. Islanders President of Operations Craig Foster says the teddy bear toss is a fun initiative for all involved. “It’s fun for the players to see the bears flying on the ice after a goal, and of course it’s all for a great cause.” The bears will be collected by Charlottetown Police Services who will then distribute the cuddly friends to charities across Prince Edward Island.

Bill Almon with the Charlottetown city police is on a mission to stop littering. Known amongst his peers as the anti-littering cop, Almon steps up his patrols every shift in areas of the city he knows are prone to illegal dumping and littering. “There is no excuse to be dumping anywhere other than a place that is authorized,” he said in an interview with The Guardian. “It’s like a game of cat and mouse,” Almon said of his antidumping surveillance. One location Almon visits every shift is Norwood Road behind the Charlottetown Airport. Almon said he has seen a variety of things dumped there in the past, including large amounts of half empty paint cans, roof shingles, chesterfields, armoires and even a small deep freeze full of rotten meat. Corp. Bill Almon patrols Norwood Road behind the Charlottetown Airport every shift because he says it has been a problem area for illegal dumping over the years.
