The following is a statement issued from Mayor Barrie MacMillan about the attempted murder in New Glasgow over the weekend.
During this weekend of Thanksgiving our community has experienced a horrendous crime that has seriously injured a young man. There has been an outpouring of care and concern for Scott Jones from our citizens and on behalf of my colleagues on Town Council I want to extend our thoughts and prayers to Scott and to his family for his recovery.
Our New Glasgow Regional Police Service is working diligently on this case and has made a call to the public for anyone with information to come forward.
This tragic incident is not reflective of our community. We have a caring and generous community, filled with good citizens that treat their neighbours and friends with dignity and respect.
The safety and security of our community is and has always been paramount.
We will not let senseless acts of violence continue nor identify our community. We have strong and effective policing services and great confidence that this case will be solved and justice served.
Barrie E. MacMillan
Mayor - Town of New Glasgow
