President Donald Trump is blaming the FBI for failing to stop leaks to the media.
In a tweet today (Friday), Trump says the information being reported is classified and could have a "devastating effect" on the country.
Trump says “The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security 'leakers' that have permeated our government for a long time. They can't even find the leakers within the FBI itself.”
He adds, “classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW.”
This morning at the Conservative Politcal Action Conference (C-PAC), Trump reminisced about his victory in the Republican primaries. He vowed to “build the wall” along the Mexican border.
And he denounced Hillary Clinton's characterization of some of his supporters as belonging in a “basket of deplorables.”

Discussions to improve safety at an Ingersoll rail crossing appear to be heading on the right track.

In a release, Mayor Ted Comiskey says “he's heard from numerous residents that the Thames Street crossing is a concern of theirs.....and it's a concern of mine.”

He says the crossing is so rough that he recently witnessed an ambulance during an emergency situation, having to stop and crawl across the tracks.

Comiskey reached out to C-N staff at the recent Rural Ontario Municipal Association conference in Toronto and Ontario lead of Community Affairs, Drew Redden, agreed to meet with him.

Redden says the approach and crossing definitely need work and they will discuss which options will make for a smoother crossing, whether it's wood, rubber, concrete or other products.
