Moncton Councillor defends new downtown centre spending…turns out to be bad at math…
— Moncton News (@MonctonNBNews) October 11, 2018
Earlier this week a #Moncton city councillor posted a lengthy defence of municipal spending on the Avenir Centre, calling out “naysayers” he says are intent on misleading the public.
But the post misstates how much Moncton spent on the centre by millions.

Oh, here’s news. Liberal caucus met by conference call and decided unanimously to sign Green declaration. We believe we have a “clear path” to 24 votes; PCs only have 22.

Premier Brian Gallant will convene a new session of the legislature on October 23rd, but his government may not be able to hold on to power. Just to catch you up…it has been a few weeks…Gallant’s Liberals won 21 seats in last month’s election — one fewer than the Conservatives, with the Green Party and People’s Alliance each winning three seats. Green Leader David Coon says after talking with the Liberals and Tories, it’s clear there won’t be any formal agreements. Instead…His party has drafted a declaration of intent to find solutions to co-operate in the house. Gallant says all of his caucus members will sign the declaration, but the 24 votes will still be one shy of the 25 needed to win a majority vote in the legislature.

Apparently a jogger got attacked by a moose last Friday while he was running on the trail in Dieppe. Paul Gallant tells the CBC that he was out for his morning run when he saw a moose standing in the middle of the trail…he says “Every time I took a step back, he took a step toward me”…he managed to get around the moose and thought he was safe…that’s a nope…he ended up getting charged three times and says the moose hit him in the face and he got knocked down. Some neighbors called 911 and Gallant was treated for some bumps and bruises. Wildlife officials say this kind of incident is rare…and their advice if you get into this situation? Run away!
The Magnetic Hill Zoo says that the three tiger cubs that were born in May are moving to a zoo in Ontario in November. That means your last chance to see them will probably be at the upcoming Boo at the Zoo fundraiser with starts the weekend of October 20th…we have more info on that event on The Scotty & Tony Page.
The Town of Riverview tweeted this yesterday…

Marijuana will be legal in less than a week… A new poll from the IPSOS research group released yesterday reveals that 6% of Canadians think they’ll be able to do dope at work…(that’s probably a NO btw…but check your updated company handbook just to be sure 😉 )
