Long Lines – Long Waits
Some people are upset after waiting for over an hour to vote in the municipal election in Kingston on Monday. Some even gave up and didn’t vote because they couldn’t wait.
Long lines at polling stations greeted hundreds of voters who waited until Monday night to mark their ballot.
The company that sold the city the new automated system had promised shorter waiting times for voters and fast results on election night. However, final results weren’t available until after 11:30.
The city hasn’t said what measures it will take to fix the problem. The next municipal election is in four years.
Driver Rescued – Charged
The driver of a vehicle that skidded off a road in South Frontenac, landed on its roof and caught fire has been charged by police.
The driver was rescued by a nearby resident who hear the crash Friday night on Green Bay Road.
The man was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment of minor injuries.
The 31 year old man from Haliburton has now been charged with impaired driving.
Police say a 41-year-old man is facing a murder charge in connection with the discovery of a Belleville woman’s body in an apartment in Burlington.
Liz Nugent has been identified as the victim. Nugent had lived in Kingston and worked at a downtown pub. She grew up in Belleville and attended Loyalist College. She was a freelance designer and had been living in Burlington.
Halton Regional Police say officers called to the scene on Monday found a man barricaded inside the Burlington apartment. He told them he had a firearm. After hours of negotiations, a tactical team forced its way into the apartment and found the body of the Liz Nugent. Malcolm Copeland of Markham is charged with second-degree murder.

Legendary Cream bassist, songwriter, and lead vocalist Jack Bruce died on Saturday, October 25th of liver disease at age 71. Bruce’s health had been a source of concern for the musician since being diagnosed with liver cancer back in 2003, which resulted in a successful organ transplant.
A statement posted on JackBruce.com read: “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad and all around legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.”
