Rainy Lake Square concert series set to debut tomorrow

While the Rainy Lake Square likely won't be open until late September or early October, residents soon will get a taste of the type of cultural programming that will be a feature of the square in future.

The Rainy Lake 150 Series, made possible thanks to Tbaytel and “Ontario150,” kicks off with a street party tomorrow (Aug. 31) at 6 p.m. with The Orville Councillor Band.


A story in yesterday's Daily Bulletin incorrectly stated the International Falls Bass Championship features a format in which half the field fishes Rainy Lake and the other half on the Rainy River on Day 1, then switch for Day 2.

In fact, the tournament changed its format this year to give teams the option of fishing either on the lake or the river.

Mailboxes damaged

Yesterday, Rainy River District OPP officers responded to numerous mischiefs on several roads in the Township of Alberton.

Officers are looking for assistance in locating those responsible for damaging and destroying mailboxes in the early-morning hours of yesterday.

Delegates push on issue of rail taxes

Town delegates met with Ministry of Finance parliamentary assistant Yvan Baker regarding the review of the railway taxation system in Ontario during the Association of Municipalities of Ontario's 2017 conference held Aug. 13-16 in Ottawa.

Back in the spring, the province set a minimum of $80 an acre for property tax rates in municipalities if a rail line goes through it.
