Liberal candidate Yves Fricot may not be the incumbent in this election , but he sure has to defend himself like he is. At Wednesday nights all candidates debate for the Thunder Bay-Superior North riding, Fricot was taking heat from NDP MP Bruce Hyer. It was over Fricot's involvement as a Buchanan Forest Products Company executive during the forestry crisis. The audience also got into the act, taunting Fricot over the issue several times. Conservative hopeful Richard Harvey tried to make his mark by claiming Hyer has not represented the riding effectively. Scot Kyle of the Green Party also participated.
The cause of a fatal fire has been deemed accidental. Last week's fire on McPherson Street killed an elderly woman and fire officials have determined it an electrical fire. Officials also say smoke inhalation was the cause of death.
