Fire – Youth Shelter

Police and the Ontario Fire Marshalls office are investigating a fire in a bedroom at the Kingston Youth Shelter as a possible case of arson.

Firefighters were called to the shelter at 234 Brock Street around 10:25 Saturday night.

They quickly put out the fire in a second storey bedroom.

One resident was taken to hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation and alternate accommodation had to be arranged for the 15 residents of the shelter because of the fire and smoke damage.

Uber – Queen’s Prof

A business professor at Queen’s University says he believes most cities where ride sharing services are operating will have bylaws in place by the end of this year to legalize the services like Uber.

John-Kurt Pliniussen says Edmonton is showing other cities it can be done.

Edmonton is the first Canadian city to pass a bylaw regulating what it calls private transportation providers.

Kingston is considering what can be done after Uber launched its service in Kingston last year.

Coalition – Planning Process

A coalition of community groups has issued a scathing report criticizing Kingston city council and city staff for ignoring public input on planning decisions.

The Coalition of Kingston Communities has issued a 16 page brief claiming the city only pays lip service to getting public input on planning issues.  The brief says Kingston’s process isn’t fair and city council has not been following the city’s official plan when it approves developments.

The Coalition represents about a dozen community groups in Kingston.

It is calling for a cultural shift at city hall to one of openness, transparency, and inclusion.

It says Kingston has to restore a balance between public and private interests.

He was scheduled to go on trial next week for attempted murder…but he plead guilty to the lesser charge of aggravated assault.
