If you’re traveling into the Fredericton or Saint John areas over the next couple of days just be aware that there are many streets and roads affected by the flooding along the Saint John River. Premier Brian Gallant toured some of the flood zones yesterday and warned residents to “plan for the worst” as floodwaters are expected to surpass the record levels of 1973 by the weekend.
Byron Miller and his wife were walking to see a show at the Playhouse when they saw this man fishing in the flood water on the corner of St. John and King streets. Miller said he appreciates this mystery man’s sense of humour. #NBFlood2018 #mycbcNB pic.twitter.com/lLWxEkYTO0

A Moncton man is walking across the country to raise money and awareness of the work that the World Vision humanitarian assistance organization does. Retired teacher Rodney Blyth started his walk on Monday by dipping his foot into Halifax Harbour…he’s hoping to come through Greater Moncton by the weekend…and planning on reaching BC by October. His goal is to raise $60,000 for World Vison and their work with more than 250 million children around the world who live in conflict zones.

NHL playoffs: Boston lost 4-1 to Tampa and San Jose shut out Vegas 4-0. The Jets host Nashville in Winnipeg tonight and Washington visits Pittsburgh. Meanwhile both the league and Brad Marchand are denying the Sportsnet report that the NHL called the Bruins and asked that Marchand “stop licking people”…According to report published by SportsNet last week, “the Bruins got a, ‘we’d prefer if you could tell Brad Marchand to stop licking people’ phone call from the NHL.” after Marchand appeared to do just that during the Bruins/Leafs series. But…apparently not true.
The Toronto Raptors are down 1-0 in their series against Cleveland…Game 2 goes tonight at 7 our time at the Air Canada Centre.
