He said there were no liquor infractions on the waters, however the same could not be said of the land and surrounding area.

“Patrols were made at Christina Lake over the weekend and several youth were checked going to and from parties in the area. There was one young person charged for ‘minor in possession’ and one person charged for consuming liquor in a public place,” explained Lanz.

“Also, one intoxicated youth was located and was taken home to their parents,” he said.
