The CBC has this story about the $4 million top secret water tower that’s being built in Shediac. Here are the basics…the water tower is being built across the Ohio Road from Camping Oceanic…but the project wasn’t included in the town budget…and residents want to know if it’s for them…or if it’s for all the campgrounds…and if that’s the case…why are residents paying for it? The Mayor of Shediac refused to do an interview with CBC News…He apparently told the reporter…”construction of a new water tower doesn’t constitute news.” The town clerk says that the town is building the water tower with a 20 year loan from the province.
