Cannabis input being sought

The Northwestern Health Unit wants to know more about opinions of cannabis in the community.

We are reaching out to community members, and the organizations we work with, for ideas and input that will help make Northwestern Ontario communities healthier.

There are a couple ways you can offer input and/or ideas:

University reps to visit

Representatives from Ontario's 21 universities will be at Fort Frances High School this Monday (Oct. 2) from 2-3:15 p.m. for the University Information Program (UIP).

This free event offers high school students from the surrounding area, and their parents, the opportunity to speak in-person with multiple university reps.

Auxiliary fall tea set for Oct. 13

The Emo and District Hospital Auxiliary will hold its annual fall tea, bazaar, bake sale, and white elephant table on Friday, Oct. 13 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Emo Legion.

Admission is $3, with all proceeds going to the auxiliary's project in the Emo Health Centre.

Be sure to bring a friend and come out to support the auxiliary and all its hard-working members.

Driver killed

Yesterday around 11:20 a.m., Dryden OPP officers responded to a single motor-vehicle mishap on Highway 502, about 60 km south of Dryden.

A highway line-painting truck travelling southbound lost control and left the roadway, rolling over.

The driver of the vehicle, Michael Gibson, a 40-year-old resident of Worthington, Ont., was pronounced dead at the scene.
