Thunder Bay Police are dealing with a stand off like situation on Brunswick Street. A man has barricaded himself in a house with a woman who police believe is his girlfriend. He's believed to be armed with a weapon. Spokesperson Chris Adams says it's too soon to call it a stand off and doesn't want to label the situation at this time. Adams is asking the public to stay away from Brunswick, Waterloo and Victoria Street for their safety.
Premier Dalton McGuinty appears to be the only holdout in a Northern Ontario debate. Both NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and PC Leader Tim Hudak have accepted the NOMA invitation for September 23rd. Horwath says McGuinty opting out of the debate shows what he thinks of the North. PC Candidate for Thunder Bay Superior North Anthony Leblanc agrees saying McGuinty continues to neglect the North. McGuinty says he wants to have a Northern Ontario specific debate in the September 27th televised debate.
