'Stuff-a- Cruiser' in need of help

The ninth-annual “Stuff-a-Cruiser” campaign is less than a month away and organizers are lining up volunteers to help out.

The event will be held Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Safeway, The Place, and Walmart here, Cloverleaf Grocery in Emo, and Beaver Mills Market in Rainy River.

Volunteers will be outside of those locations, collecting food donations from customers.

Cannabis report released

The Northwestern Health Unit has released a report on “Cannabis in the Community.”

The report was completed in preparation for the legalization of cannabis in Ontario (on Oct. 17), gathering information about public perceptions to inform future programs.

It summarizes the results of an online discussion panel and online survey that had almost 600 responses.


In a story on page A5 of last week's Times, local resident Robert Holmes incorrectly was identified as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force (R.C.A.F.)

In fact, he was an aircraft mechanic in the R.C.A.F.
