Minnesota man fined for hunting violations

A Minnesota man learned the hard way about following the rules when it comes to hunting.

The man--who is from Grand Marais--was fined a thousand dollars for firing his gun across a road when he shot a moose last year.

He was also fined another four-hundred dollars for providing a false statement to a Ministry of Natural Resources officer.

The man appeared in court on October 13th in Thunder Bay.

It's illegal to discharge a firearm over or on a public road in Ontario

Electronic waste collection

Not sure what to do with with your old electronics?

Thunder Bay residents will have an opportunity to recycle their old electronic equipment tomorrow. The Ontario Electronic Stewardship program takes place 9:30-2:30 in the Intercity shopping centre parking lot.

Collected materials will be tracked until they are recycled or disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.

The program is being funded by importers, brand owners and assemblers.
