Long haul

Criminal behaviour

This gaggle of geese were flaunting their flagrant disrespect of posted signage on the lawn across from Flinders Place yesterday morning. The geese played coy to the signs prohibiting trespassing on the property, strutting about as if they owned the place. No word on if any criminal charges are pending against these delinquent fowl.

Running towards a goal

The members of Lori Leduc's running club at the United Native Friendship Centre ran drills at the Point Park last Thursday. Leduc is a national level runner who has formed running clubs in several communities she's lived in, with the UNFC's club working on their fitness levels and incorporating cultural teachings.

Moose on the moove

Bob Green, Kurt Carlson and Jim Garvie posed for a photo with the most famous moose in town as it was being transported to its new home yesterday afternoon. The moose, formerly a fixture of the Fort Frances Tourist Information Centre, was carefully being moved out to the Fort Frances Municipal Airport by town staff, and its removable antlers were safely stowed away while in transit.
