Traffic disruptions expected tomorrow

The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service has received notification of two protests that will occur tomorrow and may result in traffic disruptions.

The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario has advised that they are planning a peaceful protest that will take place between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. in the area of M.P.P. David Orazietti’s office located at 432 Great Northern Road. 

Disruption to traffic is expected to be minimal and we urge motorists to be aware of an increased number of pedestrians in the area during that time frame.

In addition, a local group claiming affiliation to the Idle No More movement has advised of a planned protest that will take place on Queen Street East beginning at 1 p.m. and ending at M.P. Brian Hayes office located at 369 Queen Street East.

Residents can expect traffic disruptions on Queen Street East between East Street and Elgin Street tomorrow. 

Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes to their destinations as the disruption to traffic in this area is expected to last for several hours. 

Officers with the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service will be on scene monitoring both gatherings to ensure the safety of all members of the public.
