Saint-Charles man charged after hit-and-run death of Brady Francis chooses trial https://t.co/UA9LANE9vX

A 56-year-old Saint-Charles man charged after the hit-and-run death of Brady Francis of Elsipogtog has chosen trial by judge and jury. Johnson’s lawyer, Gilles Lemieux also and said his client has also chosen to be tried in French. Patty Musgrave, a Francis family friend, said if the hearing is in French, it needs to be translated. Musgrave says it would be ideal if they could have a Mi’kmaq interpreter, otherwise English would be fine. The preliminary hearing happens in January 2019.
The City is admitting that it may have been wrong about putting a busy part of Moncton on what they called “a road diet”. Earlier this year they changed a stretch of Mountain Road between Woodhaven & Front Mountain from a four lane to a two lane, with a turning lane, and bike lanes…now after only a few months they’re changing it back. A vote was held on Monday night at council and even though it was 5-5 tie…in the case of a tie the motion passes. Mayor Arnold said that she objects to changing it back…and city staff asked for more time to observe the situation…but nope…it’s being changed back to a four lane.
