Meridian Centre beefing up security
There will be a new feature at the Meridian Centre tonight for the Rock the Rink skating event.
Attendees will be the first to pass through new metal detectors.
In the past, the Meridian Centre has used staff with wands to scan concert goers, but now there will be portable detectors instead which should help speed up lines.
The detectors won't be used during IceDogs games, the OHL has yet to make them mandatory.
For most little boys and girls, now is the time of year for dreaming about the surprises they might find under their tree on Christmas morning. For parents in tight financial situations, it's the time of year they wish they could make all their children's holiday dreams come true.
You can help by donating new, unwrapped toys to the City of St. Catharines' annual Tree of Little Angels campaign, which supports Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold. Residents donated more than 500 toys to Community Care through the City's Tree of Little Angels campaign last year.
Matt and the panel talk about the stories of the day.
