In conjunction with Rail Safety Week (April 23-29), CN Police Cst. Pete LeDrew passed out information at the McIrvine Road crossing here Wednesday—alerting motorists to the importance of safety at crossings and the dire consequences of trespassing on railway property. Cst. LeDrew said the message is more relevant than ever as he’s expecting trespassing to increase because of the upcoming Portage Avenue underpass project. Cst. LeDrew was assisted by OPP Cst. Rebecca Audia.
