Sudbury Daystarter: Everything you need to start your Tuesday

News, weather and road information to start your day.

POLICE: Sudbury Police are taking steps to protect people from what could be harmful record checks. Now, when someone does a background check on you, police can withhold certain non-conviction information. Sudbury Police are also asking for clear direction from the province about what non-conviction information should be disclosed in certain "exceptional circumstances".

COLLISION: West Parry Sound police have charged a 63-year-old man after a construction worker directing traffic was hit by a vehicle two weeks ago. Police say the driver stopped on Highway 141 to argue with the construction worker before fleeing the scene.

STORE HOURS: Sudbury was one of the only cities in Ontario where retail stores were closed yesterday for the Civic Holiday, but that could change after a referendum this October. Voters will be asked if the city should have bylaws controlling store hours.
