Service Ontario – Re-Opening

The Service Ontario office at 1055 Princess Street remains closed after a fire 10 months ago.

There was extensive smoke and fire damage in the building.

A government spokesperson says they estimate repairs will be done and staff will be able to return to the office this spring…but the landlord hasn’t received a report from the Fire Marshall on the cause of the fire yet and that has delayed a settlement with the insurance company.

Services are now being offered through the office located at 1479 John Counter Blvd.

Wavve App

A smartphone app developed by a Kingston man is helping people navigate on waterways in Canada, the US and the Caribbean.

29 year old Adam Allore has developed the app called Wavve…spelled with two v’s.

It doesn’t just provide the charts for waterways…it also allows users to add information on things like moorings, fishing locations, boat ramps and shoals that may not be marked on the official charts.

It will officially debut at a boat show in Newport next month where it will be entered in a new products competition.
