Charges laid by the Ministry of Labour following the spectacular Princess Street fire last December will be back in a Kingston courtroom on November 27th.
The first court date was yesterday and the ministry told the justice of the peace it is applying to have the charges heard before a judge and not a justice of the peace.
The case involves 22 charges against two companies and four individuals involved in the construction of the five story wood frame structure that went up in flames trapping the crane operator.  It grabbed national headlines after his rescue by a helicopter from CFB Trenton.

KCVI – New Legal Challenge

The fight to save KCVI is taking a new twist.  A group of over 160 people has launched legal action against the Limestone District School Board claiming it violated teacher’s Charter rights.
It says teachers were prevented from attending a Save KCVI fund raising event at St. George’s Cathedral.
Lawyer Paul Champ says he has an email from a school principal that confirms the Board did bar teachers from attending the event.
A news release from the group Save KCVI quotes Champ as saying, “Save KCVI’s legal representatives would like to discuss with the Board ways of redressing this wrong in a fair and reasonable way and putting measures in place to insure it does not happen again.”
The Sydenham District Association launched legal action in June in a bid to overturn the board’s decision to close KCVI and QECVI.

Front Road  –  Traffic

Drivers who experience the traffic gridlock yesterday may want to avoid Front Road at the bridge near the Invista Plant.
The city says crews will be working on the bridge until late November.
Front Road was down to one lane for the afternoon rush hour yesterday.  Traffic was backed up on Ontario Street, Front Road, Portsmouth Avenue and Queen Mary Road.

Stop Signs

All way stops are coming to a couple of intersections in Kingston where there is no data that shows they have a history of crashes or even enough traffic to warrant all way stops.  It’s part of the city’s continuing program to slow down traffic and make intersections safer.  Councillor Lisa Osanic told council people are sick of speed humps.  All way stops will be added at the intersection of Regent and Mack Streets and the intersection of Katharine Crescent and Lisa Street.

Pet Vouchers

Vouchers to have pets fixed will increase to $250 after only 18 of the $100 vouchers were redeemed by people asking for financial help in Kingston.
City council agreed to alter the program last night to try and boost the number of pets that are spayed or neutered.  100 vouchers worth $250 will be available instead of 250 of the $100 vouchers.
