We’ll find out what the new Moncton Events Centre is going to be named later today…or rather…who’s paying to have a great big sign on the building. Nobody important would tell Scotty and me…so we’ve cashed in our savings and bet it all on “The Pepito’s Hawt Sauce” Centre. #We’reGoingToBeSoRich
Back to school today for grade nines at Harrison Trimble after a construction delay…Grades 10-12 head back tomorrow.

From the provincial election campaign…The Liberals, PC’s & NDP all promising help for young people…NDP Leader Jennifer McKenzie and Liberal Leader Brian Gallant are promising not to charge interest on provincial student loans…with a catch…that students with those loans stay in the province. PC Leader Blaine Higgs is promising to hire more psychologists to address a shortage that he says has left thousands of children waiting for youth mental health treatment.
