The Newton Community Association hosted a community meeting to discuss safety concerns Monday night at the Newton Seniors Centre in light of the brutal beating that killed hockey mom Julie Paskall.

There was an overwhelming turnout and only a fraction of the people who showed up were able to make it in. Politicians and media were not invited to the meeting, as the Community Association’s press release stated, “In order to ensure the committee meeting … stays positively focused on hearing Newton residents and discussing solutions, the Newton Community Association is respectfully asking all local politicians to please refrain from attending.”

Here are some videos and audio from Global TV BC1 channel, CKNW Radio via related to this issue.
