Proposed amendments to the Employment Standards Acthttps://t.co/3zQNGdNnhD
— Government of NB (@Gov_NB) January 22, 2018
The provincial government is proposing amendments to the Employment Standards Act that would allow for domestic or intimate partner violence leave to seek medical attention, obtain support services, relocate temporarily or permanently, and seek legal or law enforcement assistance. The proposed amendments would also provide job protection for people who leave work to care for a family member. Some groups in the province are calling the proposed legislation long overdue…but they want to see it be paid leave. The Government says it will be carrying out some consultations with stakeholders before changes are made.

Krysta Cowling, executive director of La Bikery Co-operative, suggested to city council, that Moncton has too many parking spaces. Cowling told council, motor vehicle infrastructure has been prioritized over active transit too long, and that must change. According to a story in the Times and Transcript about 43 per cent of the downtown is covered by surface parking lots, with many that restrict public use. Councillors voiced support for the ideas presented and staff were asked to take a look at existing bylaws.
