News, weather and road information to start your day.
  • HWY 11 DEATH:  A 35 year old man from the Temiskaming Shores area is dead following a head-on crash with a tractor trailer Sunday morning. OPP say Derek Horner of Harley Township was pronounced dead at the scene. 
  • WATER SPORTS CENTRE: Sudbury's new water sports centre is coming together. According to a board member, the difficult part of construction is done, but the centre still needs $200,000 in funding to wrap up. 
  • WINTER DRIVING: The Ministry of Transportation in Ontario has extended the time period when drivers in northern Ontario can use studded tires on their vehicles. We find out what an auto garage thinks about that change.
  • CAB FARES: Starting today, it will cost Sudburians a little more to take a taxi. Sudbury city council approved an 11 per cent fare hike last month. The owner of a local cab company says that's good news for drivers.
