Giant bomber day parole extended

The Parole Board of Canada granted a six month day-parole extension to Roger Warren, convicted of the 1992 bombing at Giant Mine that killed nine.

He's been serving a life sentence since 1995. In 2014, he was granted day parole and in December he was allowed to move to a private home placement. His conditions include not to possess or consume alcohol and not to contact family members of the victims.

Fisher fined

A 62-year-old Behchoko man who caught fish and sold it to two Old Town businessmen has pleaded guilty and was sentenced Friday to a fine of $500 for selling fish without the proper licence.

Narcisse Chocolate was charged under the Fisheries Act.

Territorial court Judge Christine Gagnon was told Chocolate believed the licence he had was sufficient for selling the fish.

He sold the fish to Bud Weaver and Sam Bullock.

Bullock and Weaver pleaded guilty and were each fined $1,000. The judge ordered the fish, which was seized in 2015, to be forfeited.
