“That’s compared to 58 calls for service over the same time frame last year,” he said, explaining that number represents calls that came in between 5 p.m. Friday and 12:01 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Pollock said he can’t even begin to guess why there was so little activity this year.
“It’s impossible to say – I have no idea,” he said. “We just got lucky, I guess.

Provincial authorities are crediting touch new anit-impaired-driving laws with a dip in the number of impaired arrests over the long weekend.
