Tues Jan 2: No Word from Police on Westside Rail Trail Investigation
Plus: Shifting to a greener culture – steps you can take at home
No word yet from police on the cause of the investigation that resulted in the westside rail trail being blocked off over New Year’s Eve.
Multiple members of the public reported on December 31 that police had blockaded the 28th St W rail trail. Unconfirmed reports suggest one person was found deceased in the area.
We are told OPP interviewed residents of Regency Tower at 550 19th St W on Saturday.
However, neither OSPS nor OPP had posted a media release at the time of publication, and neither responded to inquiries from The Owen Sound Current.
