The man behind what is being called Middlesex County's biggest drug bust was in a London court room yesterday.

61 year old Floyd Daponte made his first court appearance after OPP stormed in on his Napier Road property near Strathroy on Sunday, seizing an estimated $1.1 million in cash and drugs.

Another man and woman were also charged in this case.

Daponte, who was charged with drug possession was hoping to get a bail hearing but due to the ongoing investigation of the case, he was denied.

Seized at the home were almost 8000 Oxycontin tablets, close to 3500 morphine tablets and 100 fentanyl patches. There are also reports of a kilo of cocaine, 450 grams of crack cocaine and $84,000 in cash were found.

Daponte’s name was mentioned during the recent shocking trial for negligence causing death of Amanda Dumont and Scott Bakker, who were charged in the death of 20-month old Ryker Daponte-Michaud. He was the child's grandfather. Daponte has a long line of criminal history, dating back almost 25 years.

He is also facing drug charges laid earlier this year.

His bail hearing is set for today.

Killing grizzly bears for trophy will soon come to an end in British Columbia, but not before hunters get one more shot as the hunting season opens in some areas in the province today.

The B-C government has announced that grizzlies can only be hunted for the purpose of harvesting meat -- and all hunting of the species within the Great Bear Rainforest will be banned as of November 30th.

The Grizzly Bear Foundation says allowing this season to go ahead is a failure.
