Boivin makes progress


Local snowmobile racer Curtis Boivin has made progress in his recovery from head injuries sustained in an accident at Beausejour, Man. earlier this month.
According to the latest update posted online by the Boivin family, the 19-year-old has opened his eyes and has had positive results in preliminary tests done by doctors at a Winnipeg hospital.
“He has responded to pain, when pinched on all four limbs, and he can move his arm but with very unco-ordinated movements because of the sedation,” the update noted.
“He is still heavily-sedated, so he isn’t aware of surroundings or able to respond to us yet, but one day at a time,” it added.
