Between 7 to 9 April, 2021, Yukon RCMP Traffic Services in collaboration with members of the Canada Border Service Agency, Yukon Carrier and Compliance, and Yukon National Safety Code conducted a joint enforcement effort in the Beaver Creek area.
This effort yielded 45 Territorial charges including narcotics, weapon, and alcohol seizures.
Commercial tractor trailers were inspected. There were several offences that included:
- 5 Out of Services issued
- 3 for alcohol and drug related offences
- 2 for Log Book falsification
Corporal Natasha Dunmall of Yukon RCMP Traffic Services stated, "Operationally, each of the organizations brought their knowledge and expertise to this joint effort; the totality of which yielded stronger and more effective results than would been realized on their own". "Joint enforcement efforts like this are important for the safety and security of Yukon's communities," said Sebastien Nadeau from National Safety Code. "While the vast majority of those in the trucking industry comply with the law, even a single infraction is one too many. We will continue to work with our partners in the RCMP and Canada Border Service Agency to enforce the rules for the benefit of all Yukoners."
