Attempted Murder Suspect Now In Custody

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:43

 

 

A man accused of trying to murder a Moosomin First Nation man has turned himself in to RCMP without incident.

 

On Saturday, RCMP asked for the public's help to find Christopher Daniel Ludviksen of Glaslyn.

 

The 25-year-old man also calls himself Chris Wells.

 

He's accused of trying to murder a 45-year-old Moosomin First Nation man.

 

Police also accuse him of several weapons offences.

 

The charges stem from an incident which occurred on the Moosomin First Nation last Thursday.

Cabinet, New North To Discuss Northern Issues

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:42

 

 

Northern mayors will get a chance to voice their concerns to cabinet this week in Prince Albert.

 

Provincial cabinet ministers -- representing Highways, Municipal Affairs, Social Services and First Nations and Metis Relations -- will attend a roundtable meeting tomorrow at the Travelodge.

 

Topics up for discussion include the Northern Transportation Strategy, tourism and municipal grants.

 

New North chairman Bobby Woods says many leaders want to know how they're supposed to pay for things like landfill management, when it's not covered through existing dollars.

 

"We don't have access to certain things, like shredders and things for shredding our (used) tires, or maybe recycling them.... And we also can't afford to have landfill managers there on a full-time basis, and locking and unlocking the gates. There's just a lot of questions and concerns around those kinds of policies that cost x amount of dollars that we don't have in our operating grants," Woods says.

 

Woods adds he's happy that the ministers are ready to meet with them in person on this and other issues.

Zelensky Bros. Purchases Former Wapawekka Site

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:40

 

 

The owners of a La Ronge sawmill have finalized a deal to buy the former site of Wapawekka Lumber.

 

Brian Zelensky says he and brother Perry purchased the Prince Albert-area property because they already owned a planer mill on the site, and didn't want to tear it down.

 

Zelensky says that while Wapawekka has been closed for nearly four years, and their own La Ronge mill has been dormant for about a year and a half, they haven't given up on forestry.

 

"We closed that planer mill, and we've left all the equipment -- left everything ready to go again, in anticipation that there may have been a start-up there. And at this point, we're going to leave it in that position until we see how the forest industry sorts itself out here over the next few years," he says.

 

Zelensky says he's been negotiating a land purchase since last fall, when the site owners' other buildings and equipment were sold at auction to a company that is moving them to Alberta.

 

He says while he and his brother don't plan to re-start milling operations for now, they may look at leasing or renting the rest of the property out, or use it to temporarily house equipment from the nearby family farm.
