Happy Canada Day!

Canada is turning 153 years old tomorrow, but it’s never had a birthday bash like this before. This Canada Day won’t be like any other - no fireworks, or family events at the Point. It’s true it will look different, but all our favourite things will be there for us next year.

Family home on fire

The Family of Brian and Diane Major, above, was lost in a house fire on Sunday afternoon. They were forced to flee without shoes and just the clothes on their backs. The house, right, was destroyed in just 20 minutes. The family has been overwhelmed by the generosity of the community. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help them rebuild.

Family loses home in fire

The family is safe, but their lives are forever changed.

On Sunday afternoon, the home of Brian and Diane Major of Morson filled silently with thick, black smoke. It took only 20 minutes for the home to be reduced to ash. In that 20 minutes, the family lost everything - except their lives.

Them or us

Today at noon, a Pride flag was raised at Fort Frances town hall, joining thousands of others flying across the globe.

June is internationally recognized as Pride Month - a peaceful rally for the equality and acceptance of all people, regardless of who they love and how they express their identity.

Albright joins Pilots

The Muskies’ own Jacob Albright has become the latest Providence Pilot student athlete to ink his letter of intent. He’ll be joining the University’s Men’s soccer team, while he works towards a science degree.

“I am really excited to not only start playing at Providence, but also learning through the academics and growing as a person,” said Albright.

Get growing

The Fort Frances Community Garden has been bustling with activity with the new growing season. The facility rents plots to local residents, allowing them space to grow their own food and flowers. Jenna Plante shows Daisy McFarlane how to plant flowers.
