Meeting up with the Premier

May 26 at 11 am police were notified about a suspicious male hanging around the Cache Creek Village Office, asking staff about Premier Christy Clark’s whereabouts. The Premier was in town that day to survey the flood damage. Police were given a license place number that didn’t match with the man’s vehicle and became concerned. The vehicle was located and the number given to them was wrong. The correct number showed a valid registration. The 65 year old Coquitlam man was there hoping to speak with the Premier.
