If it is like my jeep, it is not lockable. You just push on it and it opens, doesn't even have a gas cap that you could lock. Now I am lucky as I have a garage that I keep my jeep in so that provides some deterrent, but as said if they really want to they could get at it.What happened to locking fuel doors when the car’s locked?
Which means they were pros, with high-flow electric boost pumps rigged on a mini-blivet in a stealthed car…probably a minivan camouflaged like a taxi so late night wouldn’t look suspicious. Probably looked like an F1 pit stop but in reverse…
I wonder if the main body out of Edmonton made it through yet?It ain't over till it's over.... and it ain't over:
Highway 3 closed again after mudslide east of Manning Park
There's no estimated time of reopening.
A new washout has closed Highway 3 between Hope and Princeton.
DriveBC says the critical link is now closed in both directions due to a mudslide seven kilometres east of Manning Park.
Details are limited, but roads contractor Emil Anderson said on social media that crews are responding and traffic is being stopped at both ends.
There is no estimated time of reopening. There is no detour available.
The Hope-Princeton Highway has been the designated route for commercial vehicle traffic between the Lower Mainland and the B.C. Interior since Friday. Usage of the corridor has been limited to essential travel only.
Highway 99, the Duffey Lake Road, remains open and is now the only link between the Lower Mainland and Interior.

Most likely / most dangerous at this point?I just watched the news and they've opened up single lane alternating traffic through that slide on Hwy 3, so they should be able to get through.
However, starting Wednesday, we're back into 'belt fed storms' mode with over 100mm of rain forecast over about 4 or 5 days. Not as bad as the biblical event last week, but the ground is already waterlogged so all bets are off....
Most likely / most dangerous at this point?
No kidding. Politicians are loath to spend money on things that don't have a calculated 'vote benefit'. Spending money on equipment stores (remember PPE stockpiles?) or adequate personnel or systems to adequately surge always fail in the face of the thousand other things that researchers and polls tell them the public wants. Maybe - hopefully - as events become more frequent they will read the tea leaves that the public wants this. Or they will just hope it doesn't happen until the next government is in power.It took B.C. three days to declare a state of emergency. The provincial emergency alert system does squat. And everyone keeps passing the buck.theline.substack.com
We don’t seem to do disaster response well in this country.
