A 73-year-old Pointe-du-Chêne man is facing charges after police discovered 485 cannabis plants at his house. Lawrence Leger appeared in court yesterday to face the charges…back on April 28th police were called to the scene of a house fire in Pointe-du-Chêne and that’s when they found what they called a “multi-stage marijuana grow operation.”. Leger will return to provincial court Sept. 25.

The Village of Dorchester says that they have launched an internal investigation after a fireworks display went haywire at an event in the community on Saturday night. Crowds were gathered at a ball field Race Track Road for the annual family fun day fireworks display. Part way through the evening’s fireworks display, a number of fireworks began shooting off into the crowd and hitting people. First responders had to attend to some minor injuries on site and there were a lot of scared families and kids. Witnesses describe the scene as “utter chaos” and said that everywhere you looked there was “sheer panic”. Dorchester Mayor Jerome Bear tells the CBC that they’ll be looking into hiring professionals to set off the fireworks in the future.
