Roads – Kingston Transit

It doesn’t look like it is going to be a great drive for you this morning.

Roads in the area are snow covered and slippery.

Kingston got 10-15 cm of snow.

Kingston Police investigated half a dozen crashes last night caused by slippery conditions.

Two Kingston Transit buses got stuck on Hillside Avenue and one went off the road in Collins Bay.

Kingston Transit also stopped servicing stops on Hudson Drive and Prince Charles Drive because of the weather conditions.


Don Cherry

Don Cherry is making no apologies for his controversial rant about “you people” not wearing poppies.  Cherry says he could have kept his job as co-host of ”Coach’s Corner” had he agreed to become — as he puts it — ”a tame robot who nobody would recognize.”

Sportsnet fired him yesterday saying following discussions with Cherry, it was decided it was the ”right time for him to immediately step down.”

Cherry contacted the Canadian Press last night and says He knows what he said and is sticking to it.  He says the support he’s been getting is unbelievable.


Queen’s – Installation

Patrick Deane will be installed as the new principal and Vice-Chancellor of Queen’s University today.

Convocation ceremonies are taking place at Queens and the installation of Deane is one of the highlights.

Following the ceremonies today in Grant Hall there will be a reception to celebrate Deane’s installation as principal at Ban Righ Hall.
