Charges stayed against councillor


After months court hearing delays the case against RM of Ritchot councillor Ernie Dumaine is resolved.

Last December RM of Ritchot councillor Ernie Dumaine was charged with uttering threats after a conversation with another councillor. It was alleged the councillor threatened the life of the municipality’s public works foreman.

Sources say that at a hearing last month, Steinbach Provincial Court stayed charges against Dumaine based on age and lack of a previous record. He was ordered to pay a $200 fine and to issue an apology to his accuser.
