opp-snow-regSOUTHERN BRUCE COUNTY – During the recent winter storm, South Bruce OPP officers closed some area roads in the interest of public safety. Some of the road closures lasted for days, which is inconvenient and frustrating, but driving on a closed road is not just illegal, it's gambling with safety.

During the last storm, warnings were given and charges were laid as South Bruce OPP officers encountered vehicles on the closed roads. A few motorists chose to drive around a road closed barricade and continue driving along the closed road in the presence of a marked police cruiser.

OS-Policesept-regThe Owen Sound Police Service is warning the public regarding a fraud after an Owen Sound resident was contacted over an alleged outstanding debt on their telecommunication services.

Detective Sergeant Jeff Fluney stated, "Yesterday an Owen Sound resident received a notice purporting to be from a national telecommunication company, stating they owed over $200.00 on their account balance. The notice further advised that a representative from the company would be attending the home at a later date to collect the funds."

The resident contacted the telecommunication company directly and was advised to contact the police as it was a scam.

"We want to remind the community that they must always be vigilant when contacted by a company or an individual making such claims. The national telecommunications companies do not conduct business in this fashion. If people have any doubt about any correspondence they receive they should contact the company directly for clarification," said Fluney.

This record-setting production allowed Bruce Power to provide 30 per cent of Ontario's power at 30 per cent less than the average price of electricity in 2014, keeping costs stable for families and businesses, said Duncan Hawthorne, President and CEO.

"I'm extremely proud of our accomplishments in 2014, and must recognize our employees for the important work they do in keeping our eight units producing safe and carbon-free nuclear energy that's there for the people of Ontario when they need it," Hawthorne said.
