Hey, Great Sudbury! Here are some stories to start your day on Wednesday morning.

The city’s first responders march on PTSD Awareness Day

There was a light drizzle and a chilly wind, but that did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the Sudbury area first responders who took part in National PTSD Awareness Day. It was a rally that brought together members of the Great Sudbury Police Service, Greater Sudbury Fire Services, Greater Sudbury Paramedics, Ontario Provincial Police and members of the Irish Battalion in Canada. As the march left from the Flour Mill area along the Notre Dame Street corridor to Tom Davies Square at lunchtime, several motorists gave cheers of support. Detective Constable Ryan Hutton, one of the organizers of the rally, said the day was a nationally recognized event and the first time it had been noticed by first responders in the Sudbury area. Hutton said it’s important to have a day to raise awareness about PTSD and mental health and wellness.

Cambrian College sells its musical instruments

As students continue to be accepted into Cambrian College’s music program and the last students in the program graduate, the college is selling its musical instruments starting this week. “First-year admissions are still pending, and neither is the program itself,” Cambrian College spokesperson Dan Lessard explained in an email to Sudbury.com. There is a formal process for this that we haven’t done yet. However, due to regional enrollment trends, we do not expect a change in the decision to withhold admission, which is why we sell instrumentals. “The space that was previously occupied by the music program is critical to classes in other programs as we increase our total enrollment.”
