Woodstock Police intercepted a group on the weekend as apparently they were getting ready to rumble.  

A citizen flagged down a cruiser just after 9 Saturday night to say he had just had a gun pointed at him. A quick search came up with the suspect vehicle and police found a cache of weapons designed to be used in a fight.  As well as arresting the four people in the vehicle cops found a replica handgun, brass knuckles and a baseball bat.  The investigation revealed this incident was part of an ongoing feud between a couple of groups.  

Facing multiple charges including possession of prohibited weapons, pointing a firearm, and breaching a prohibition order are a 27 year old man from Brantford, and 18 year old female from Woodstock, a 40 year old woman and 30 year old male from South-West Oxford. The man from SWOX was passed on to Hamilton Police who had a warrant for his arrest. (bd)

According to a study by the Canadian medical association journal published on Monday, they found that there were 355 firearm injuries on average each year among children and death in Ontario.

One quarter of those resulted in death.

That's almost one child a day being injured by a firearm or weapon.

Researchers found that refugee children and youth were 1.4 times more likely to be shot than Canadian born residents of the same age.

Firearm injuries due to violent assault tended to occur in low-income neighbourhoods in city-scapes.

The study examined millions of records of Ontario children, teens and young adults from 2008 to 2012 and found that immigrants from Africa and Central America accounted for 70 percent of the tally.

This however, did not account for suicides.

More people in Ontario will be eligible for Legal Aid with changes announced by the Attorney General.  Yasir Naqvi announced an increase in the financial eligibility threshold by another 6 percent, which will open the door to another 140,000 people, regardless of their ability to pay.  In 2014 the government announced that it wanted to make Legal Aid accessible to a million more people within the decade and the most recent announcement moves them half way to that goal.  The changes take effect the first of April.
