Quite an uproar has developed this past week in north Bradner where James Conway is in residence.

Why weren’t any of the neighbours informed by the authorities of this placement?

Why is a three-time convicted pedophile, as well as being a convicted arsonist, in residence on a small street that has four families with young daughters and/or granddaughters? One is of pre-school age and lives directly across the road.

This is an incredibly, irresponsible decision and an egregious lack of judgment.

If anything goes wrong the nearest police presence is 20 minutes away at best.

It’s not unknown for electronic monitors to be removed.

The area is surrounded by thick bush and trees, all the houses are on acreage and relatively isolated from each other so an intrusion into any one of them would probably not be seen or heard by neighbours.

Mayor Hepner had plenty to say against his placement in Surrey.

He’s a repeat convicted pedophile, he should be in prison, not living in a neighborhood with young children.

Neighbours are irate and want him gone.

It’s an outrageously, ill-conceived situation and needs  immediate intervention.

Matt and Cherry Groves, Bradner
