The Times & Transcript is reporting that the Anglophone East District Education Council is putting in an immediate request for more funding to address a chronic shortage in school psychologists. Council member Ian Hebblethwaite tells the paper that he wants to make the issue the council’s number one priority. Last week the Times & Transcript reported accounts from four former school psychologists who left their jobs over issues regarding pay, work demands and feeling disrespected by managers. Anglo East has funding for as many as eight psychologists but currently has only two on staff for the nearly 16,000 students in the district.

The Supreme Court of Canada is set to make a constitutionality ruling Thursday in a case that began when low-key, 64-year-old N.B. retiree Gerard Comeau was stopped by police with 14 cases of beer from Quebec and fined nearly $300. #FreeOurBoozehttps://t.co/Si4UB3jPkC

The Supreme Court of Canada will make a ruling today in the case of Gerard Comeau who was stopped by police with 14 cases of beer and three bottles of liquor in his trunk after a beer run to Quebec in 2012. Comeau’s lawyer said the ruling could have the power to shift a host of laws across the country from selling chickens to cannabis. Comeau is also hoping to finally be reimbursed for the trunkload of alcohol that was seized more than five years ago.
