A sentence is expected today in the case of a Winnipeg truck driver who was involved in a Saskatchewan highway crash that killed three teenage boys.

Normand Lavoie pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm for the chain reaction collision two years ago in a construction zone near Spalding.

The Crown argued for a six-year prison term. (The Canadian Press)


A Winnipeg police officer who was wounded when his service pistol went off in his holster has been released from hospital.

The officer was critically injured when his gun accidentally discharged on August 7th.

Police say the constable is facing lengthy rehabilitation but is expected to make a full recovery.

A wildfire that continues to move closer to a national park in southwestern Alberta has sparked yet another air quality advisory for southern regions of the province.

The latest statement from Environment Canada – issued yesterday afternoon — covers several areas in and around Waterton and Pincher Creek due to a fire threatening Waterton Lakes National Park.

The weather agency says a persistent weather pattern will result in very little improvement in conditions over the next few days.

Alberta Health Services is also asking people to refrain from visiting the Cardston and Pincher Creek Health Centres because of smoke entering the buildings when doors are opened. (Global Cgy)
