A no swimming advisory was issued Monday for the fourth day in a row at Parlee Beach. The Times & Transcript is reporting that visitors at Parlee are down another 10% this Summer and that the park has lost a third of it’s crowds since 2015. The paper also published a picture of Health Minister Benoit Bourque lying on his back in the water at Parlee spouting water out of his mouth…he told reporters that the water is excellent and that they’re disappointed in the media coverage that says otherwise.

Moncton’s House of Nazareth emergency shelter is apparently in urgent need of renovations…new executive director Rene Ephestion says the dormitories and bathrooms need work and the shelter could use two heat pumps, which would also serve as air conditioners. The CBC is reporting that the shelter is asking the province for $90,000 in emergency funding. The shelter housed more than 700 people in the past year.
