Searchers Find Body Of Missing Montreal Lake Man

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at 12:50

 

 

The search for a missing Montreal Lake man has ended in tragedy.

 

The body of Chuck Benjamin LaValee Smith was found yesterday morning in what's known as the Old McLeans area.

 

The 23-year-old man was last seen alive last Tuesday in the west subdivision of the reserve.

 

Band officials were worried he may have become disoriented as he required daily medication.

 

His body was recovered by Montreal Lake's search and rescue team.

 

RCMP say foul play is not suspected.

Man Injured In Hit-And-Run Near La Loche

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at 12:48

 

 

Two La Loche residents have been charged in a hit-and-run half a kilometre south of the northern village.

 

RCMP say a 21-year-old male pedestrian was struck by a vehicle shortly after 8:00 last night.

 

The vehicle fled the scene, but the RCMP eventually arrested a 27-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman.

 

The male suspect is alleged to have been the driver, and is facing charges of failing to remain at the scene of an accident and driving while disqualified.

 

The female suspect, who the Mounties allege was the passenger in the vehicle, has also been charged with failing to remain at the scene of an accident, as well as public mischief.

 

RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Carole Raymond says the Criminal Code allows for passengers to be charged in cases like this if there is reason to believe they urged the driver to flee the scene.

 

There is no word on the victim's condition.

Wanuskewin Threatened By Wildfire

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at 12:46

 

 

The CEO of Wanuskewin Heritage Park says a grass fire near the park yesterday could have been much worse.

 

Dana Soonias says the fire came within 20 to 30 feet of the building, which firefighters were working hard to protect because its siding and roof are cedar and would easily catch fire.

 

The heritage centre at the Park was threatened several times throughout the afternoon.

 

The blaze broke out at 1:47 p.m., and at one point, forced the temporary closure of Highway 11 when it reached the highway's edge.

 

The fire was finally brought under control at around 6:30 last night.

 

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.

 

Soonias says when he looks outside now, he sees a new beginning rather than destruction.

 

Soonias says there is little damage -- a bridge in the trail area needs some work and the building itself needs to be aired out as it had smoke in it.

 

He doesn't think it will impact visitors, though, as he figures in about a week or so the trail area will be green.

 

Wanuskewin is currently home to an Allen Sapp exhibition, as well as "Portraits of the North" -- which are of elders from northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
