In The News For Clarence Rockland — February 8, 2018

Old Man Winter flexed his muscle in southern Ontario and Quebec with a messy snowstorm Wednesday that dumped 10 to 15 centimetres of snow on many areas and caused several crashes. Police say one of several pileups on Montreal-area highways involved at least 50 vehicles on the Trans-Canada Highway at Mont. St. Hilaire, and killed a man in his 70s and injured at least 15 other people.

 

Provincial police say half a dozen young men have been arrested after hundreds of mailboxes in towns west of Ottawa were either
smashed or stolen over the weekend. Renfrew O-P-P say it happened in McNab-Braeside, Horton, Admaston and Greater Madawaska townships between Friday and Monday. Police say five 17-year-olds and one 18-year-old were arrested Tuesday. They say the 17-year-olds will be dealt with through the Extra Judicial Measures Program, an alternative to dealing with such behaviour within the formal court system. The 18-year-old man was released with no charges, and police say he will also complete a similar informal program

 

Kingston says it’s embarking on a new program that will make it a “Smart City.” The city says it’s teaming up with Bell Canada to implement new technology that will monitor certain municipal operations. Digital kiosks will provide Wi-Fi access, real-time event updates and charging services, as well as 911 emergency buttons. Data from internet-connected items will be also collected and organized to help the city keep track of things like energy use.
