N-D-P Leader Andrea Horwath continues a swing through northern Ontario today as she campaigns for the June 7th election in Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie.

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford is to make an announcement at a brewery in Baysville and tour the Hunstville Beer Festival.

Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne is taking a day off from campaigning.

Yesterday Ford promised to expand beer and wine sales to corner stores if his party wins the election.

Ontario Public Service Employees Union president Smokey Thomas says putting alcohol next to milk sends the wrong message to children and youth and calls the promise -- quote -- utterly stupid and irresponsible.

Provincial police are reminding those heading out on boats over the long weekend to think of safety.

They say boating fatalities on O-P-P-patrolled waterways reached an eight-year high in 2017, with 31 people dying last year compared to 23 deaths in 2016.

O-P-P say falling overboard was the lead contributing factor both years, adding that the outcome could have been different for 42 of the victims who weren't wearing a properly secured personal flotation device.

They're also warning of the dangers of cold water immersion at this time of year.

A 33 year old Kitchener woman is facing charges after she was allegedly trafficking crystal meth into a Milton prison.

The investigation began back in march, where police got a tip that meth was somehow getting into the Maplehurst Correctional Complex.

Staff at the prison believe that the letters sent to inmates were infused with the drug and when police seized the letters for investigation, it was confirmed that they did in fact contain traces of the drug.

The investigation is continuing.
