News Tidbits – OPP have officially identified a family killed in a collision on February 6, 2018, on Highway 69 in the Shawanaga First Nation Territory. Hunter CHAMBERLAIN, 20-years-old, Victoria WHITEHEAD, 21-years-old and Bentley WHITEHEAD, three-years-old, all from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario died when their sports utility vehicle (SUV), upon impact with a tractor trailer, became engulfed in flames. Their identity has been confirmed by the Office of the Chief Coroner and the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service (OCC-OFPS).

The investigation was conducted by members from the West Parry Sound Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and at the time revealed that the northbound sports utility vehicle (SUV) crossed the centre line into the path of a southbound tractor trailer.

It was interesting to hear that Toronto is having a problem with coyotes. A public information session was held last night at the Roding Community Centre in North York. They offered a number of tips to the public on coyote awareness and safety. A second information session will be held April 12 in Etobicoke.
