'It's an aggressive competitor': Manitoba farmers warned about noxious weed

'It's an aggressive competitor': Manitoba farmers warned about noxious weed The province is warning farmers about an aggressive, invasive weed that's spreading in Manitoba. Tall waterhemp was reported in four spots this summer, including sightings in three southeastern rural municipalities — the RMs of Reynolds, Whitemouth and Ste. Anne — where the noxious weed hadn't previously been seen, as well as the RM of Rhineland. The plant can produce between 250,000 and one million seeds per season, and can grow up to three centimetres per day, said Tammy Jones, a weed specialist for Manitoba Agriculture. The plant can germinate from May through to August, and populations in the U.S.

Dealing with theft, violence and property crime: Meth is a main election issue in Manitoba© Global News David Holubowich says meth-related theft has increased at his business and he's doing his best to combat it.

Manitobans who have been victims of property crime say they are fed up with having their personal belongings stolen and hope the politicians running in the province's 2019 election, and those running in the upcoming federal election, will come up with a solution.

David Holubowich, owner of Avenue Construction, said there are sometimes multiple thefts a week at his complex in West St. Paul.

“Every day it keeps getting worse and worse," he said.

Holubowich, who believes Manitoba's meth crisis is to blame, said copper wire, scrap metal, batteries and fuel are targeted most.

His biggest loss came earlier in the month when someone stole an excavator and trailer worth a combined $200,000 from his property.

Holubowich has already installed several security cameras but is now looking for more ways to secure his property.

“I have to put fencing around the complex and a gate and people are going to feel like they’re in prison and it shouldn’t be like that,” he said. “Something needs to be done and done soon.”

Dave Penner, the sales manager at Insight Service Solutions, said the Winnipeg-based cleaning company is still facing thefts despite having cameras and a fence surrounding its compound.

While company vehicles get broken into, Penner said thieves mainly target ladders.

Liberals, NDP promise sick note ban, tout $15 minimum wage pledge Manitoba New Democrats and Liberals were promising to make the lives of workers better Monday while using Labour Day as a backdrop. Both are committing to raising Manitoba's minimum wage to $15 an hour from the current $11.35 rate and both parties said they would introduce a ban on employers asking for sick notes for an illness that lasts 72 hours or less.

Dean Love, owner of Catch It On Camera, has been installing security cameras in Manitoba since 2009. He said business is currently at an all-time high.

“In the last two years, we’ve seen a marked increase in property crime to the point where I've had to focus specifically on commercial clients," Love said. "I’ve been turning down residential business now for probably the last 18 months.”

Love said many of his clients are victims of petty theft.

“Anything that could be turned over for a quick dollar,” he said.

Property crime in residential neighbourhoods appears to be spiking as well.

Point Douglas man frustrated by election signs erroneously placed – twice – on his private property A Point Douglas man says an election sign that was attached to his chain link fence – twice in recent weeks – was put there without his permission, and he's trying to figure out why. Frank Douglas told 680 CJOB he was sitting in the living room of his Burrows Avenue home last week when he saw two children and a woman he believes was their mother on his property. The kids, he said, dropped an NDP pamphlet in his mailbox, while the mother started affixing a sign to his fence.

“I’d say within the last year or so it’s gotten a lot worse," he said. "It’s not big crimes but it's more just little stuff to inconvenience everybody.”

“You come out in the morning and hopefully your car hasn’t been gone through.”

The Winnipeg Police Service’s annual statistical report released in July showed property crimes were up 19 per cent in 2018 compared to 2017, and 44 per cent higher than the five-year average.

Winnipeg police Chief Danny Smyth said the exploding meth problem is contributing to the rising numbers and it's not showing any sign of slowing down in 2019.

Video of bike theft in downtown Toronto has police saying, 'Here we go again'

Video of bike theft in downtown Toronto has police saying, 'Here we go again' A video that shows a thief using a power tool in broad daylight to cut open a bike lock in Toronto's financial district last month has garnered thousands of views online, and police say it underscores a bike-theft problem that's plagued the city for years. Ben James, a 34-year-old recruiter for an IT company, says he took his bike to the gym on his lunch hour on Aug. 23, and locked it up. When he came back at the end of his work day to ride it home, it was gone. "I thought it was pretty safe being here in the financial district and I was really blown away that someone would have the balls to come down and steal it," James said.

At times, hundreds of 911 calls have been stuck waiting in a queue for dispatch.

In an internal memo to officers this summer, Smyth urged officers to “please hang in there” as they deal with the drug crisis.

Campaign promises

The Progressive Conservative Party promises to launch a three-point plan to address meth and other drugs, including a new sobering facility, new recovery and drop-in centres, a new Rapid Access to Addictions Medicine clinic and more supportive recovery housing units.

The PCs also promise to spend $10 million to reduce crime in downtown Winnipeg and to create 12 new treatment and waiting spaces for people with a meth addiction.

The Liberals unveiled their meth and addictions plan on July 19, which includes drug stabilization units, extending recovery time in public beds and more transitional housing for addicts.

Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont also says his party will open a virtual addictions co-ordination centre if elected. Lamont said people would access the centre, which would cost between $2 and $3 million a year, by phone or online so they can get addictions help when they need it.
