Locked in a loo in Chemainus, BC

RCMP Academy, Regina, Saskatchewan

One of the funnier news stories to end up in my in box is about the tourist who was trapped in a loo in Chemainus on Vancouver Island.

Here's the opener from the
Times Colonist story titled Mounties flush out tourist accidentally locked in loo:

Chemainus has redefined the phrase "tourist trap" -- as one unfortunate visitor to the scenic Vancouver Island community found out this week.

RCMP Const. Dave Hay of Chemainus-based South Island Traffic Services said he received the most unusual call of his career on Thursday from a resident of the Lower Mainland, who claimed that a relative was trapped in a public washroom in Waterwheel Park, which is near many of the town's popular outdoor murals.
