** UPDATE – as of 6:50p tonight Connaught volunteer firefighters will return to work.  Community meeting will still be held Monday**


According to a Facebook post from the Hoyle Community Club, an emergency meeting has been called Thanksgiving Monday following the resignation of volunteer firefighters in Connaught.

The October 8th meeting at the Hoyle Community Centre is “to discuss our concerns and how to proceed with rectifying this situation.” The meeting starts at 7 p.m.

According to numerous Facebook posts and listener messages, the resignation came after the “unjustified termination” of the station’s chief.  Maija Hoggett, TimminsToday.com, spoke with CAO Dave Landers late this afternoon.  Landers confirmed that “there have been a few individuals released from the volunteer fire system within Timmins.”
