Off-duty North Glengarry firefighter Tristan Shannon rescued two people from a burning vehicle January 25 on Highway 417 near Vars.
Two people were struggling to get out of the car when he arrived on the scene.
After he helped them out of the burning vehicle, he dialed 9-1-1.
"Without the training I received as a firefighter, I wouldn't have known how fast the situation could escalate," he says.
Agriculture and AgriFood Minister Lawrence MacAulay, and Member of Parliament for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, Francis Drouin, were at Ferme Geranik on Monday to announce an investment of up to $2.7 million to support Dairy Farmers of Canada's program to enhance public trust in dairy production through the continuation and implementation of its quality assurance program, proAction, and an environmental sustainability strategy.
"Dairy farmers are a vital part of our communities. These investments will benefit our local farmers and enhance our reputation for high quality and sustainability," said Mr. Drouin.
A 48-year-old Cornwall man was hurt when he lost control and entered a ditch at 1:22 a.m. January 26 on a trail near Kraft Road in South Glengarry.
The man was transported to hospital with serious non-life-threatening injuries. SD&G OPP with the assistance of (TCI) Traffic Collision Investigators continue the investigation.
Another day, another snow day for area students.
If you managed to dig out from yesterday's snow, you can look forward to freezing rain today, when,
of course, school bus transportation has been cancelled for the fourth consecutive day.
Driving is an adventure again as snow has given way to black ice and slush.
And some parking lots are like rinks.
But we can anticipate a return to lower temperatures later today.
Make it Snow Day Number 3 this week as Old Man Winter decided to give us another helping of snow last night and today.
We can look forward to milder temperatures, and, of course, freezing rain later today, apparently.
Take it easy out there, folks.
How bad is it? A snowplow was in the ditch on the 417 near St-Isidore earlier this morning.
CAO Bryan Brown and South Glengarry township have parted ways after nearly five years.
A press release issued Tuesday states that “council will be considering its options for the leadership of the township over the next few weeks,” adding that “further information will be provided as it becomes available.”
No reason was given for Mr. Brown’s departure. “Bryan made a significant contribution to the township during his years here, and council wishes him the best of success in the future,” Mayor Frank Prevost said in the release.
Mr. Brown was officially appointed as CAO June 23, 2014, succeeding Derek Brandt who was fired earlier that year.
Mr. Brown had previously held CAO posts in Machin and Madawaska Valley.
