The Province announced nine more locations for legal marijuana retail outlets yesterday…around here stores were announced for Shediac and Sackville…there have already been stores announced for Moncton and Dieppe. When pot becomes legal this Summer New Brunswick will have 20 locations…plus they’re talking about selling it online…that’s a sharp contrast to our neighbors in Nova Scotia…they’ve got a bigger population but the government is only opening 9 stores to sell dope there.

Opening packages at University of Moncton has become a whole lot more interesting lately. Since November at least 30 packages have arrived to the student federation with no return address. Items include a record player, watches, dog toys, a dashboard camera, foot hygiene products, a hunter’s video camera and…uh…half a dozen “adult” toys. Federation president Tristian Gaudet told the CBC , since the packages started arriving, opening the office mail has become a lot more fun. Gaudet says all of the items are being returned to Amazon…except the “adult” stuff…they’ll be donated to “sex toy bingo” an annual fundraiser.

The federal competition watchdog says that any way you slice it, there was bread price fixing in Canada’s bakery industry. The Competition Bureau alleges that Canada Bread Company and George Weston’s senior officers communicated directly to raise prices at least 15 times between about 2001 and 2016. They allege that seven Canadian companies were involved in deliberately fixing prices to overcharge us. Don’t forget that you can now officially register to get a free $25 Loblaws gift card (that’s Superstore)…Register HERE.
