COCAINE AND CASH COLLECTED IN RAID
A Hawkesbury man faces charges following a police raid. Members of the Hawkesbury OPP detachment, the OPP Street Crime Unit, and the Emergency Response Team ex- ecuted a search warrant on a residence on Gladstone Street in Hawkesbury May 8. Steve Roy, 49, of Hawkesbury now faces charges of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, posses- sion of an imitation weapon for a danger- ous purpose, and failure to comply with a legal undertaking. During the raid police seized an unspecified quantity of cocaine, some Canadian currency, a pellet gun, some cell phones, and other items which are often associated with drug trafficking. The accused was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled for a provincial court appearance in L’Orignal September 9. Meanwhile the police in- vestigation continues and more charges are anticipated.- Gregg Chamberlain

officer for the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU). Drouin provided information and answered questions about current federal aid programs designed to help small busi- nesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Roumeliotis provided an update on the pandemic situation in the EOHU region and also answered questions about how busi- ness operators can manage their operations as the provincial government begins to phase in its plan to restart the Ontario economy. The government is doing a gradual lifting of the restrictions it imposed on businesses in March as part of its pandemic prevention plan to reduce the chance of COVID-19 conta- gion. Those restrictions included mandatory public closure of all businesses except those deemed “essential” like grocery stores, restaurants which can provide drive-through or delivery service, drugstores, and others which keep residents supplied with food, medicine and other necessities. The three chambers of commerce will continue their virtual information conference project each week, featuring other guest speakers, for the benefit of their members.
The three chambers of commerce for the Prescott-Russell region launched a new virtual conference project to help keep their members informed of important business news items during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I think it exceeded our expectations,” said Stéphanie Simard, president of the Clarence-Rockland Chamber of Commerce. “We’re certainly going to continue it.” Simard and her counterparts, Julie Brisson of the Prescott-Russell Chamber of Commerce and Marc Lecompte of the Hawkesbury Chamber of Commerce, co- hosted an hour-long virtual information conference May 6 through the Zoom social media teleconferencing system. More than 40 people participated in the event, either as observers or else posing questions to either of the two guest speakers for the event. The virtual teleconference featured Glen- garry-Prescott-Russell MP Francis Drouin and Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, chief medical health

Anyone wanting to stroll along the Prescott-Russell Recreation Trail will have to either walk or ride a bike to get there. All the vehicle parking lots at the trail access points are now closed as the United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) follows the provincial government’s pandemic prevention plan for closure of public recreation sites to prevent people gathering and posing a risk of contagion. The trail access gates remain open but the UCPR urges residents to avoid using the Prescott-Russell Trail until after the pandemic situation is over. —supplied photo
