bruce-regTIVERTON - Bruce Power will appear at a public hearing before Canada's nuclear regulator on Thursday, as part of its five-year relicensing process. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission hearing will be webcast and then archived for 90 days at www.nuclearsafety.gc.ca.

The second part of the hearings will be April 14-16 at the Kincardine Legion. The public is encouraged to participate in the three-day hearing, whether through a written or oral submission to the panel.

"Public support and engagement has always been a key component to Bruce Power's success and one we never take for granted," said James Scongack, Vice President, Corporate Affairs. "We encourage people to get involved in the process and have their say."

stolen-art-regOfficers from the Collingwood and The Blue Mountains detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are currently investigating a theft in Collingwood and are asking for the public's help in solving this crime.

The theft took place sometime over the holiday season in December/January 2014 at the Tremont Art Gallery on Simcoe Street in Collingwood. The painting is described as oil on canvas painting of a summer scene in an orchard, 20"x24" in a natural colour box frame.

scam-regSOUTHERN BRUCE COUNTY – On January 26, 2015 at 7:40 pm, the South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a fraud report from a resident of Arran-Elderslie. An urgent phone call was made to advise their "grandson" had been in a crash and needed money badly. A sum of almost $1,400 was sent through a money transfer service before the scam was recognized.

There is no magic to preventing fraud. If something sounds too good to be true or seems a little "weird" it probably is. Beware of unsolicited phone calls, emails, letters, faxes and strangers at your door. Unsolicited means that you didn't ask for it. It's your money, you work hard for it, so don't hand it over to a con artist. Hang up the phone, delete the emails, ignore the faxes and close your door; if they can't interact with you, they can't steal your money.

United-Way-Winter-regDecember 2013 gave us an indication that 2014 was going to be an exceptional year for the Utility Assistance Program. We saw a doubling of propane prices, rising from a low of 55 cents per litre to a high of $1.29 per litre. Propane shortages were reported across the province.

The extended and very intense winter saw weeks of snow days and closed highways. There were mid-winter disconnects as well as closed highways keeping the trucks off the road. The anticipated summer slowdown did not occur as families were still catching up on the winter's bills, and struggling to get ahead before the weather turned cold again.
