WINNIPEG - A man involved in moving a house in Charleswood has been charged with mischief after mature trees were cut on the weekend so the home could travel along Roblin Boulevard.
Winnipeg police say a load permit was issued but the accessibility of the route wasn't confirmed as the permit requires.
Area councillor Kevin Klein says residents starting hearing chainsaws about 5 a.m. Saturday.
He says cutting and even trimming city trees is destruction of public property and he's already working at getting the trees replaced.
The house eventually made its way out of Winnipeg.
