On Saturday, August 10, 2019, RCMP officers from Forteau detachment and Traffic Services West partnered with Sûreté du Québec of Blanc Sablon and conducted a joint agency check point during the 40th annual Bakeapple Festival in Forteau.
Police issued a number of tickets for speeding, no insurance, driving while suspended, tinted windows, driving with and expired licence and operating an ATV without a helmet, to name a few.
Officers were pleased to report that no one was found to be driving while impaired.
