Wink legal protection in canada

this is my first post so I hope I am doing this correctly.
We have a warehouse off the main road in Chatham Ontario and in last 2 months have been broken into 26 times. We are a small city but have a large amount of meth users who as early as 6pm start searching for items they can steal. We have a fence around the compound but it is down in many areas and cannot be fixed. We also have security cameras and an alarm system monitored by ADT on the main building but when they call the police , the police don't usually show up. They started breaking into our locked garbage bins and moved to our locked storage containers and then to the main building. I'm a father of 3 and recently the kids aged 11-14 shows up at 10 to unload our van and was attacked by an angry/high male with a bat. I'm asking if anyone can tell me our rights to protect ourselves and property. I cannot move atm . thanks for any help

Sorry to hear of your problems.
but I would suggest you call an attorney - not ask for advise on a computer forum on the internet.

but my best free advise - after 26 break ins.. move!

As md suggests, but maybe you could surreptitiously leave out some large meth deposits for them to enjoy and waste their time and life enjoying, while they can and maybe save some of your stuff and all the hassles they're causing.

So personally I wouldn't call a lawyer.

I would talk to your mayor, mpp, go to townhall meetings. I'd also go to the police station and sit down with someone. Calling each time is great but it's not painting a picture to the police of how bad the situation is.

You pay property taxes and you are not getting the service and protection you are paying for!

Failing that I'd go provincial. Write a letter to Kathleen Wynne directly. It's election time. Probably never going to get a better audience than right now...

What about hiring security? Would be a deterrent, and it may not even need to be a permanent solution once word gets out that *something* is being done.

Good old Wynne - dont worry your local liberal will make it a safe injection site.. they seem to set them up all over in Toronto.. next to parks and schools and tourist attractions
