This incident led to a lot of discussion about crime and safety in Downtown Port Coquitlam. Is it getting worse and if so what is the cause?

A Port Coquitlam city councillor says the city’s downtown core is being taken over by a “bad element.”

“I have no other way to describe it, if you walk down there, it just seems like there are a lot of deadbeats hanging around,” Coun. Brad West told Global News.

West said vehicle break-ins and open drug deals are becoming commonplace in parts of downtown Port Coquitlam. And he said the area is no longer friendly to families and residents.
