Langille Back

After more than a year on the run, a Lunenburg county man will have his day in court on charges relating to a double stabbing in Bridgewater. Police arrived back in Nova Scotia last night with 21 year old Cory Kyle Langille. Langille was arrested in a south west Calgary apartment last Friday. He had been wanted on a Canada-wide warrant after being charged with two counts of Attempted Murder, two counts of Aggravated Assault and one count of Breach of Probation in relation to an incident last summer. Two Lunenburg County men received serious, life threatening injuries which required hospitalization and surgery after being stabbed along King Street in the early morning hours of June 29th, 2008. Langille surrendered without incident. His court appearance is scheduled for this afternoon at 1:30 in Bridgewater.

Liberal Health Concern

With a week to go before school starts, Liberal health critic Diana Whalen says the government has not armed parents with necessary information about H-1-N-1. The school boards’ pandemic plans have yet to receive final approval and school staff have not yet received procedures to be followed when dealing with a possible outbreak, Whalen says. The Liberals say parents and school staff must be informed of plans and new procedures prior to the school year.

Queens Tourism Support

Just over $200,000 in Federal funding has been committed for a new Visitor Information Center in Liverpool. Gerald Keddy was in Queens with the Minister for ACOA this morning to make the announcement. The new visitor information centre in Liverpool will replace a 30 year old building. The project will include improvements to the surrounding waterfront infrastructure and upgrades to walkways and parking facilities. And close to $87,000 was committed for the Seaside Recreation and Community Centre. That project includes creating an access path from the facility to the beach with upgrades to the heating system, and the replacement of windows. The project will also support the installation of informational signage along Highway 103 and Route 3. Region of Queens Mayor John Leefe says the projects will mean superior support for folks visiting their beautiful and historic community.
