A public meeting tonight at Bernice McNaughton High School about whether or not Hillcrest School will be closed for good. Parents want it to stay open…but enrolment is right around half of capacity. Here’s the issue though…if Hillcrest closes the idea is it will be combined with Bessborough and both schools will move into one new school. A survey published by the Times & Transcript shows 38% parents against that and 37% for it….with another 25% undecided. Lots of division there…the public meeting starts at 7 tonight at BMHS.
Weather Network Chief Meteorologist Chris Scott is out with some Winter weather predictions…he’s warning that Eastern Canada should get ready for a stormy Winter…beginning in December! He predicts that the Maritimes are “in store for above normal levels of precipitation”…Scott says storms with a lot of snow are forecast for December in the eastern half of Canada…and here in the Maritimes, slightly higher temperatures are expected, the precipitation could make for some sloppy conditions. He says “this will be a winter that’s more on than off.” They predict that periods of milder weather and rain will keep the snowbanks from getting as high as they did during the winter of 2014-2015.

The CBC had the story yesterday about the $4 million water tower that’s being built in Shediac….and because the water tower is being built in the end of town near a bunch of current and future campgrounds there was speculation that it was going to be used for them…and residents were upset about that. The town released a statement yesterday afternoon basically denying that…saying: “Unlike what is being suggested by CBC, the water tower is not being built to serve the future needs of a campground. It is however being built as part of a long term plan to serve the needs of all users of the municipal water system.”
