5:38 pm police received a report of a motor vehicle collision that had happened the week before. There is now a dispute on the amount of money being required to fix the damage.

24 June 2015,

1:25 pm, police responded to the intersection of Huron and Island St where someone had taken the stop sign. A few times a year we respond to issues like this and I have recently heard on the radio of another incident in another municipality where someone had taken a stop sign. This is such a dangerous practice and all you have to do is think for the slightest moment the pain and suffering you could cause when someone drives through this intersection and gets involved in a collision. As with most things, THINK. Practical jokes are one thing but pranks that can physically hurt another are dangerous.
