William “Bill” Laurie, CPR station agent, appears to have a good chance for complete recovery, after being found on the station premises Tuesday afternoon with gunshot wounds in the chest.

A .22 rifle was located close by and local RCMP have the case under investigation. Mr. Laurie was rushed to hospital and given several blood transfusions.
