In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

opp-car-regularCOLLINGWOOD - Officers from the Collingwood and The Blue Mountains detachment of the OPP charged a youth over the weekend for a theft of a poppy donation box from a local business in Collingwood.

On Saturday morning, the 8th of November 2014, police were called to attend the Tim Horton's on First Street in Collingwood for the reported theft. Police were able to view video surveillance in the store which led police to the identification and subsequent arrest of the youth. The donation box was located by a resident nearby and returned to the Royal Canadian Legion in Collingwood.

As a result, a 14 year-old youth from Collingwood is now charged with theft under $5000 and is to appear in Youth Criminal Court in Collingwood. He cannot be identified under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. (YCJA).

sex-violence-regViolence Prevention Grey Bruce is holding a Round Table on sexual violence prevention on Wednesday November 12, 2014 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm at the Grey Bruce Health Unit.

"We are inviting people from all walks of life to talk about preventing sexual violence in our community because this is such a taboo, and often difficult to grapple" said Bernice Connell, a member of the organizing committee and the manager of sexual assault services in Grey Bruce. "Into the Open is an invitation that will bring people and ideas together. We hope it will help us learn together about the things that make it hard to tackle sexual violence, and the things we can do together to make change."
