Provincial police had to deal with a staggering number of collisions, injuries and deaths on the roads last winter.
The main message…slow down…and during any snowfall…make sure you have your full headlights on so people can see oncoming lights and your tail lights. The OPP say this is critical in helping to reduce the risk of collisions when driving in poor visibility.

Brockville – Canadian Flag

Brockville’s bid to be named birthplace of the Canadian flag has been shot down by the son-in-law of the man who designed the flag in Kingston.
The Whig says it will publish a letter from John Blackwell that says if any organization could take credit it would by the Royal Military College.

Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall”- Ivy

Posted on by Courtney


IvyIvy is a sweet, senior Australian Shepherd. This lovely girl came to the shelter through no fault of her own. She is a little anxious here and is hoping to find her new home soon! Ivy is house trained and is still quite active. She would love to go on as many walks as you’d like to take her on! Ivy can be a bit protective of her favourite toys and treats and may need some help learning how to share. We think she’d do best in a home with no children under 12 years old but would be suitable for a first time owner. Ivy has lots of love to offer and with her lovely, thick coat she’s ready for winter! If you’re looking for your new best friend and ready to give a shelter animal their second chance, Ivy is waiting for you – come meet her today!
