“I think this is not fair to Parlee Beach,” says Arthur Melanson of the Red Dot Society, a group that has been critical of the province for moving too slow with the clean-up. He says Parlee doesn’t belong on the list. https://t.co/7Zcps7hZ8N #NewBrunswick #pollution #ParleeBeach

The province is threatening an American website with legal action after it put Parlee Beach on their list of the 13 dirtiest and most polluted beaches on the planet. The Insider, based in Delaware, is one of those companies that comes up with a lot of those click bait links you see on Facebook….and they put Parlee right up on the list with other filthy , polluted beaches from Brazil and Senagal. The province says that the website used bad information in the article and representatives from the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture threaten the publication’s editor in chief with legal action if they don’t remove Parlee from their story. Read more HERE.
A no swimming advisory for Murray Beach was put out by the province yesterday…the tests for e coli in particular were very high…averaging over a 112 count when they’re normally around a 2…one of the tests had it at over 280 coliform count. You’ll wanna check on the latest before you head to the beach…you can get the daily updates on the swimming situation at the beaches on our Summer Links page.
