Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP John Rafferty is no fan of switching parties mid-term. Rafferty say he can't comment on the reasons behind Quebec MP Lise St. Denis leaving the NDP for the Liberals, but doesn't support how she did it. Rafferty doesn't think her defection will have a big impact on the party that still holds down 102 seats in the House of Commons.
A northern Ontario politician is calling for a coroner's inquest into a series of fatal highway collisions in the North. Nipissing M-P-P Vic Fedeli also says there appear to be problems with road clearing in Northeastern Ontario. Fedeli says an inquest is needed into the deaths of 10 people in collisions in late December and early January.
A fatal collision has forced the closure of the Trans-Canada Highway. OPP say the crash occurred early this morning near the Highway 71 junction, about 30-kilometres east of Kenora. Police say it may take up to 8-hours to investigate. A detour is available by using Highway 11. Poor road conditions are to blame.
