Red Deer RCMP arrest man after truck collides with pub

Red Deer RCMP arrested a man Saturday night after the truck he was driving crashed through the doorway of a hotel pub in north Red Deer.

Shortly before 10 pm on September 22, Red Deer RCMP responded to a report that a truck had driven between two pillars and through the doorway of the Lion’s Den pub at the Quality Inn at 7150 50 Avenue, resulting in extensive damage to the pub. No one was injured in the collision, and the male driver was restrained by occupants of the pub until police arrived and arrested the suspect without incident. According to witness statements, the driver left the pub in a taxi, then returned a short time later driving the truck.

Red Deer RCMP are investigating the incident as an impaired driving collision. The 27 year old male faces numerous charges; his name cannot be released at this time as those charges have not yet been sworn before the courts.

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.

NewsAlert: Canada should align with allies on Olympic diplomatic boycott: Trudeau

Published on

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it is important for Canada to align with its allies on a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Trudeau says Canada has been talking to allies for “many months” about the issue and an official announcement is expected later today.

The United States was first to announce a diplomatic boycott Monday, meaning American athletes would still compete in Beijing but no U.S. political officials would attend.

Australia and the United Kingdom have both now followed suit.

They cite human rights concerns including allegations of genocide against the Muslim Uyghur minority in China’s Xinjiang province.

China denies those allegations and is accusing the United States of upending the political neutrality of sport.
