(From Environment Canada, For East Elgin,  5 am) – “Southwest winds will increase this morning and afternoon ahead of an approaching cold front. Wind gusts up to 80 km/h are expected, especially for areas near the lakeshore. These winds may be strong enough in some areas to toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break. Isolated power outages may be possible as well. The wind will begin to ease late this afternoon into this evening.”





Malahide CAO Michelle Casavecchia-Somers advises that Co. Rick Cerna, who missed last Thursday’s Council meeting, is currently off on a medical leave for an undetermined length of time.

(Information from Aylmer Police Chief Andre Reymer) – “Our officers are now carrying Naloxone (Narcan) as a first aid measure for themselves in the event of an opiate exposure. Its commonly available through pharmacies to assist those with opiate addictions and their families as well. Its primarily a first aid measure for my staff and secondarily for the public in the event we interact with someone overdosing and ambulatory care isn’t readily available. Fentanyl and its more deadly cousin Car-Fentanyl are the topical drugs in the media but this is Opiate receptor blocker so it works on heroin, morphine, OxyContin, etc. as well. We have not had occasion to use it yet but are equipped to do so should the emergency arise.”





Among decisions made at Aylmer Council at its regular meeting last night:

Council defeated this motion by Co. Ted McDonald on behalf of the Aylmer Canada 150th committee: “We have designed a stainless steel maple leaf which will be our time capsule to be installed in a rock/fountain display that will be installed in the north west corner of the greenspace adjacent to the Old Town Hall”

Canada Post will never contact you via email unless you have pre-arranged this. Canada Post will normally leave you a notice on your door with information regarding a delivery. Another common scam is a type of emergency scam. This is where a fraudster will call your phone. They will tell you they are either a lawyer or police officer and request money must be sent, as a family member has been arrested. You need to check before you act. All types of frauds should be reported to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center at 1-888-495-8501 or by going online to
