Furnace salespeople/Inspectors are going door to door within the residential communities asking to come inside and inspect the furnace, hot water heater or air vents, which if successful leads to the use of high pressure sales tatics. Most of the subjects have been very persistent and aggressive in their attempts to get into the residence. Reported to CPS have been the company names of ‘Simply Green’, ‘Prairie Home Services’, ‘Prime Home’ and then others stating that they work for the ‘the city’ or ‘the government’.

Asking your Help to Save SCAN
SCAN (Safe Communities and Neighbourhoods) is a provincial program to condemn property that has been the scene of repeated crime. Recently, SCAN condemned a house at 108 Malvern Crescent after three drug-overdose deaths. Hopefully, a new family will move in soon.
The program is at risk of ending due to budget cuts. Marlborough Park Blockwatch asks neighbours and supporters to contact the province to urge continuing this successful program.
