150 CP Rail Workers are on strike here in Thunder Bay. Union Spokesperson Randy Mior says there's been several stumbling blocks in contract negotiations including cuts to pensions. The two sides are continuing to negotiate but Mior says they're prepared to stay out on the picket line for as long as it takes. A picket line is set up on Syndicate Avenue.
OPP are happy to report they found a missing elderly couple. The Minnesota couple went boating on Lac Des Milles Lake and didn't return to their campsite at Pine Point Resort on Monday. The North West Region Emergency Response Team with the assistance of a Ministry of Natural Resources Helicopter Unit found the couple on the lake later that evening. They had experienced trouble with the boat motor.
