Thunder Bay Police say two people were involved in an industrial accident at the Abitibi Bowater Saw mill today. The Ministry of Labour has taken over the investigation and at this time police won't say what happened or the extent of the victims injuries.
It looks like Thunder Bay Police are heading towards a budget deficit. Chief JP Levesque says so far they are just over 1.2 million dollars over budget mainly due to overtime pay and an increase in legal fees. Levesque says they didn't budget for overtime and because City Council asked them to cut back last year's projected budget. He says when they make cuts overtime is the first thing they look at and it turns into a pay me now or pay me later situation once they run deficits. Levesque says they are still waiting for some provincial and federal grant money that will bring the deficit down to around 3 percent.
