The Ontario 511 app is now available to all drivers.
The app allows drivers to keep track of snowplowing and road conditions within the province. The app provides images from more than 600 cameras while providing up-to-date highway information on construction, collisions and road closures. It was released to the trucking industry earlier this year.
It was recently expanded to include new features such as the ability to track snowplows on provincial roads and highways and the ability to see whether those roads are snow-covered or bare, as well as weather warnings from Environment Canada about potentially nasty conditions. It also provides up-to-date information about rest stops across the province.
A wealthy Chinese pigeon racing fan paid a record price of $1.9 million for a Belgian-bred bird.
During a frantic last half hour Sunday at the end of a two-week auction, two Chinese bidders — operating under the pseudonyms Super Duper and Hitman — drove up the price.
A successful Belgian breeder (Gaston Van de Wouwer) retired at 76 and his son had too busy a professional life to continue in the pigeon business so all 445 birds were put on auction.
