CAMP SCHOOL WORK

Work is underway for the new Angolophone K to Eight school in Campbellton on

the Rotary field, which the city gave to the province to keep the school in

the city, according to the Tribune.

The work also requires the movement of an existing water pipe, which will be

done by LCL Excavation for just over 300-thousand-dollars.

In 20-20, the new school will replace the Campbellton Middle School, along

with the Tide Head and the Lord Beaverbrook schools.

95 CKNB, the Campbellton Tigers, and the Atlantic Superstore will host the

Human Link Food Drive to support Family Violence Prevention Month on

Wednesday, November 7th, starting at ten in the morning at the Lord

Beaverbrook School in Campbellton.

NB POLITICS

New Brunswick’s Liberal minority government is on the verge of defeat today.

This, after the Tories and the Peoples’s Alliance say they’ll vote against

the throne speech.

That would leave Premier Brian Gallant’s Liberals without enough support to

survive the confidence vote.

The Liberals won just 21 seats in the September election, one fewer than the

Tories, while the Greens and People’s Alliance each won three seats.

*NB-ALL RADON

Radon is a naturally occurring and cancer-causing radioactive gas found in

houses.

Long-term exposure can lead to lung cancer.

According to Health Canada, over 1 million Canadian homes have high radon

levels, but only 6 per cent of Canadians have had their home tested for

radon.

Radon levels in Canada are the highest in New Brunswick, Manitoba, and

Saskatchewan.
