  • Port Moody police officer attacked

A driver has been arrested in Port Moody after police say he tried to grab an officer's sidearm during a sobriety check.

Port Moody police say the incident happened last night in the 26-hundred block of Saint Johns Street, when officers made a traffic stop to check on the sobriety of a driver.

Police say the man's samples exceeded the legal limit and resulted in a 90-day driving ban, but he then became hostile and was arrested for public intoxication.

Police say the man allegedly tried to take one of the arresting officers' sidearm while fighting the arrest, and charges including assault have been recommended in the case.

The Bank of Canada will be in no rush to cut interest rates after Statistics Canada reported a larger-than-expected employment gain last month, economists say. The federal agency's labour force survey released Friday said the economy added 37,000 jobs in January after several months of relatively no change in employment. Canada’s unemployment rate fell to 5.7 per cent last month, marking the first decline since December 2022.
