Howling wind, freezing rain, piles of snow - we are used to everything winter can throw here in Grey-Bruce.
But everyone deserves to be safe and warm inside their own home.

"Baby It's Cold Inside" is a fundraiser for the United Way Bruce Grey to fill up their Utility Assistance Fund for those who cannot afford the gas, electricity, propane, oil and wood to keep themselves warm this winter.

ride-regCHATSWORTH – The OPP is conducting its annual Festive R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign from November 24, 2014 to January 2, 2015.

Grey County OPP is reminding drivers that any amount of alcohol, or other drugs, can impair one's ability to drive. An OPP Drug Recognition Expert can determine if a driver is impaired by drugs other than alcohol. An immediate roadside driver's licence suspension can be issued to drivers who register a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in the "Warn Range" of .05 to .08. A BAC of over .08 will result in an impaired driving charge. Failure or refusal to provide a breath sample is an offence and carries the same penalties as that of an impaired driving charge.
