RCMP & Worksafe New Brunswick are investigating after a worker was killed on the job while trimming trees in Riverview yesterday. NB Power was also called in to shut power off in the neighborhood. Police say the man was working near power lines on Deerwood Crescent when the incident happened and that they were called around 4pm but they’re not saying much else at this point because they’re trying to figure out what happened.
A fire in the north end severely damaged a duplex on Evergreen Drive yesterday. Firefighters responded just before noon-time and had the fire out within an hour. Deputy Fire Chief Dennis Dollemont said there were no injuries…even though residents of both sides of the duplex were home at the time. People watching were pretty amazed at how fast the firefighterfs were able to get things under control…apparently the other side of the duplex wasn’t even damaged!

Moncton Centre MLA Chris Collins says he won’t run for the liberals in the next election and says that he’s going to sue Premier Brian Gallant. Collins says the way Gallant handled the harrassment allegations against him was “atrocious” and “one would expect more from the premier of any province”. Collins has not said whether he’ll run as an independent…but a statement released by the Premier’s office said that Collins was a “passionate representative” of his riding and that the Liberals will now look for a new candidate for Moncton Centre.

(Get up to date travel info HERE) The four-lane stretch, used by an average of 10-thousand to 12-thousand vehicles every day, has been closed for a week because of the historic flooding in the province. Meanwhile…Premier Brian Gallant announced yesterday that the province has asked the Armed Forces to conduct a “reconnaissance mission” to determine if the military can help in the post-flooding cleanup.
