    Having grown up in the area I know that where it is happening has nothing to do with lack of police action. Yeah right.

    I got one in my community too. Deal with it ! -and do it like a man instead of calling those worthless idiots that some call peace officers. Trust me you'll have more success;) look me up on Facebook and I'd be glad to help since their retarded organization has basically labelled me a kingpin of the valley when it comes to drug dealers, I'm sure I can put some pressure on em to help clean up your fine community of--- YO-HO!

    The police know about every drug dealer in the area and their movement. It takes time to put a case together and come up with a game plan. Putting a sign up will just get you or your family hurt. Just asking for trouble to land on your front door IMO.

    Norm lives up past the hospital at the end of Exhibition street so wouldn't Kentville Police handle that area ? Maybe the 2 police depts. are confused as to whose responsibility it is ? This has happened before in other areas . .

      That part of Exhibition Street is policed by the RCMP. It is not Kentville's Town Police and no, they are not confused as to whose responsibility it is. It's bad enough that they have teenagers not from the community that go up there to party and destroy peoples property and steal things. And yes, the Rcmp know about it, but it's not like it just happened. It's been going on for a long time but yet they still do nothing about it.

      U can practically see Normans street from the kentville police station on River street .. They could be on his doorstep in 5 minutes if need be. Why would his street be policed from a totally different village and why would they ever have to call a car in from the 101 that might be in Aylesford or wolfville and then have to drive all the way thru Kentville to get to Normans house ? this situation ( if true ) is stoopid and does not make any sense ??? and maybe the RCMP don't like it.
