Fisher named to RHC roster

By Josh Howald

Kincardine native Kendra Fisher has been named to Canada's national women's roller hockey team and will represent Canada at the FIRS World Championships.

The world championship tournament is happening in Italy in June.

This isn't the first time Fisher has minded the net for Canada's national inline hockey team. She won a gold medal at the FIRS World Championships in 2012, and has represented Canada at the FIRS World Inline Hockey Championships on at least four other occasions, including in 2014 when Canada lost in the gold medal game to the United States.

Reconsider decision

Taking away blue containers at Beefway because they are being used too much - really? Because they worked so well, the municipality decides it should be stopped? The only problem is that they weren't emptied often enough. Most times I went, one could barely squeeze in cardboard. Guess it was too much effort to maintain, but they solved that extra work problem by cancelling a much used service.


I hope not all council decisions are this way. It would have been a good one if it was not being used at all. The right solution would have been to empty them more often. Hopefully we won’t see more waste along roadways due to this. (This writer would never do that.)
