Two die in plane crash

SANFORD, Man.—Two men have died in a small plane crash in Manitoba.

RCMP said the single-engine Cessna took off yesterday from St. Andrews, north of Winnipeg, and was reported overdue at its destination in Winkler.

Police, along with a Canadian Armed Forces search-and-rescue team, eventually found the wreckage near Brunkild, about 45 km southwest of Winnipeg.

Revoked Nexus cards reinstated--for now

OTTAWA—Trusted-traveller Nexus cards revoked from about 200 Canadian permanent residents have been reinstated, at least for now, said Public Safety minister Ralph Goodale.

The Nexus cards, which help people cross the border more swiftly, were cancelled a few days ago because a recent U.S. executive order on immigration made the holders ineligible, Goodale confirmed yesterday.
