Canadian Ranger Master Cpl. Pamela Chookomoolin began her service with the Canadian Armed Forces by doing basic training with the Reserves in Timmins after participating in a military co-op in high school.

“I tried the Reservists portion for a bit but then I came home — the only thing available here was the Canadian Rangers,” Chookomoolin says. “I had finished high school and I did my basic training (in Meaford, Ont.), but I came home in the fall and I’ve been here ever since.”

Ontario Superior Court Justice Helen M. Pierce is scheduled to deliver her decision in the Brayden Bushby manslaughter trial over the death of the late Barbara Kentner on Dec. 14.

Bushby, 21, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault and not guilty of manslaughter. His judge-only trial was held Nov. 2-5 in Thunder Bay at the Courthouse Hotel, formerly known as the Superior Court of Justice Building from 1924-2014, due to the closure of the Thunder Bay Courthouse over damage from an electrical fire.
