Thunder Bay's Crime Prevention Council wants you to get out and explore your neighbourhoods. Coordinator Sheelagh Hendrick says it's part of a series of walks taking place this weekend. Walks are planned for the areas of Bay and Algoma, Waverley Park, Westfort, and Evergreen. The Waverley Prospect Walk includes a miniature flour mill that was built by Rod Muir that's a replica of the mill in Scotland where his great-great-great-great grandfather worked.

Hyer went out with a blaze of publicity, telling reporters his failure to be named to Mulcair's shadow cabinet showed he was being punished and muzzled for voting with the Conservatives to kill the federal long gun registry.
