Still no decision made in the Jimi the dog saga. His owners will be back in court in March in connection with the dog park death of Gus the Chihuahua. Defence lawyer Francis Thatcher says his clients are facing breach of the dog owner's liability act. Fletcher says they'll be arguing that Jimi is not a pitbull and he did not kill Gus.

The Ring of Fire mining development remains a hot topic for the Chamber of Commerce. President Harold Wilson tells a pre budget committee in Thunder Bay, the government must get back what it spends on the project. Wilson posed the question what if the smelter isn't in Thunder Bay or the region. The Chamber head wants the government to track the infrastructure expenses that are put into bringing the project to fruition. Wilson says if the smelter is moved out of the Province the government should hand them a bill for the work that was done.
PC Northern Development Critic Randy Hillier tried to call out the local Liberal MPPs at a Pre-Budget consultation session yesterday in Thunder Bay; but had the tables turned on him. Hillier sent out a news release asking why there weren't any Thunder Bay area MPP's at the pre budget consultation. But only moments after the making the release public, MPP Bill Mauro showed up. He was late because he was attending a Health Science Centre news conference but took it all in stride. Mauro and Hillier were spotted later having a friendly chat.
