Cold Case Update

Police are widening their search just north of Kingston for evidence in the case of a man who has been missing since 1993.
Kingston Police spokesperson, Constable Steve Koopman says investigators have found multiple items of interest in the Gordon Cameron case.  He won’t say what the items are – but says the search in the area of North Shore Road has been expanded.
Police began their search last week after receiving new information in the case.  They believe Cameron was murdered and the 22 year old case is connected to the Outlaws Motorcycle gang.

CRA Fraud

It’s a new and nasty twist to telephone fraud.
Frontenac OPP is warning about fraudulent calls from people claiming to be with the Canada Revenue Agency.  The detachment has received four complaints about a man calling people claiming they were going to be arrested for tax fraud unless they gave him personal information.
Police say you should never give personal information to someone who calls you.
These fraudsters sometimes refer people to a website that looks like the real deal – but – police say it is also a scam to try and get your bank or personal information.

Ontario – E-smokes

The manager of the Canadian Cancer Society in Frontenac – Lennox & Addington calls it a huge milestone.
Doug Kane says the cancer society is celebrating a new law passed in Ontario that means electronic cigarettes will be treated the same way as regular smokes.  It means they can’t be sold to anyone under 19 and can’t be used in areas where regular tobacco is banned.
The law governing e-cigarettes is due to come into play on January 1, 2016.
Ontario’s new Making Healthier Choices Act also bans the sale of flavoured tobacco including menthol cigarettes, increases maximum fines for those who sell tobacco to anyone who is underage and requires restaurants with 20 or more outlets to put calorie counts on their menus.

North End Grant

Kingston’s Rideau Heights neighbourhood will benefit from a $175,000 grant from the Green Municipal fund.  The grant was announced by the federal government and Canadian Federation of Municipalities.
The city is working on revitalizing the Rideau Heights area.  Mayor Brian Paterson says it is an important priority for city council.

Injured Workers

Two men who were injured on the job are bringing their 600 kilometre cycling tour to Kingston today.  Richard Hudon and Peter Page are riding from Ottawa to Toronto to bring attention to changes in the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.

Hudon and Page will be at Hotel Dieu Hospital at 4 this afternoon.
