Moncton City Council unanimously approved a motion to set aside $20,000 in emergency funds to help the city’s homeless population at yesterday’s council session. City Hall also confirmed yesterday that Mayor Dawn Arnold asked the new Finance Minister, and Moncton Northwest MLA, Ernie Steeves, for $400,000 from the province to help find a more permanent solution to the homeless issue. Steeves tells the CBC that the request is “significant”…but understands that finding a solution to the problem is going to cost money…and will probably take a comittment from all three levels of government and from the public too. He says he’s only spent three days working with Finance Dept staff since he got the Minister’s job so he’s got to see what they have to say about the the Province’s financial situation first.

The Southeast District RCMP is investigating the occurrence of several explosions in the Boundary Creek area over the weekend, and asking for information from the public to help identify the person or people responsible. The RCMP received a number of calls about loud explosions that were heard at around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 17, 2018. The investigation has determined that some kind of explosive substance was set off in a gravel pit off Highway 106. A number of shell casings were also found in the vicinity, leading police to believe that the substance was shot at in order to trigger the explosions. No one was in the area when police arrived, and no injuries or property damage has been reported. Police are continuing to investigate and are asking anyone with information on who may be responsible to contact the Riverview RCMP detachment at 506-387-2222. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
