Between 10:50 and 11:05 p.m. on March 27, 2019, Lake Country RCMP received two reports of vehicles being blinded by a strong green laser light coming from the area known as Sunburn Hill.  The first report came from Air Dispatch with a complaint from an airplane flying over Ellison Lake and Wood Lake that was hit with a powerful green laser.  The second call was from a motorist blinded while driving southbound on Highway 97.  Aiming a laser at an airplane is a federal offence as per Transport Canada and under the Aeronautics Act you could face up to $100,000 in fines and up to 5 years in prison.
