In The News For Friday October 26, 2018

 

A special weather statement is in effect for snow expected sometime between late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning.  According to Environmental Canada a low pressure system approaching from the south will bring some snow into portions of Central and Eastern Ontario and General snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 cm are possible with higher amounts over higher terrain. Ice pellets are also possible along the international border and that may be a significant impact on transportation in these areas.

 

 

Sudbury, Ontario and Saint John, New Brunswick are the latest cities to get hit with a walkout from Canada Post employees. Officials with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers say the latest round of rotating job action will only be in effect for the day. Nearly nine-thousand members of the C-U-P-W walked out earlier this week in the Greater Toronto Area, which is a key processing hub for the Crown corporation. The union and Canada Post have been negotiating for the past 10 months, but remain far apart on separate contracts for rural and urban carriers.

 

 

Critics are suggesting that marijuana users in Ontario could go back to the black market as delays continue in the delivery of legal cannabis.  More than a week after recreational pot became legal, the government-run Ontario Cannabis Store is warning consumers of extended wait times due to what they call “extremely high demand.” The O-C-S website also cites labour action at Canada Post, where unionized employees began rotating strikes this week.
