FRANCOPHONIE GAMES COSTS EXPECTED TO SKYROCKET  RF/CBC

Two years ago, the Moncton-Dieppe area won the bid to host the 2021
Francophonie Games on a budget of 17 million.

However, that could now cost taxpayers 7 times more than expected.

The request for overall funding by the Games’ organizing committee is for
$130 million.

Moncton and Dieppe were supposed to each kick in $750,000, with the rest of
the money split evenly between the federal and provincial governments.

The Higgs government said it was shocked to find out the price tag when it
took office.

 

PERSON OF INTERST    GG/RCMP

RCMP are looking for a Moncton woman in connection with the investigation
into the murder of Candice Kennedy-Faguy.

Police describe 43-year-old Amanda McFarlane as a person of interest and say
they’ve been unable to locate her. It’s believed McFarlane is still in the
Moncton area. She’s described as 5’2″. 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown
eyes. Her photo is available on the RCMP News Website.

Police have not said how McFarlane is connected to Kennedy-Faguy’s murder
investigation. The 35-year-old was found dead in vehicle on West Lane in
September. 44-year-old Claude Blanchard has already been charged with
first-degree murder in her death.

*YELLOW VEST PROTESTS COMING TO CANADA  RF

The “yellow vest” protests against carbon tax schemes and U.N. decrees are
coming to Canada.

Earlier, hundreds of thousands of French citizens wearing yellow vests made
president Emmanuel Macron back down on his proposed carbon fuel tax regarding
so-called greenhouse gases, and also protested against the proposed U.N.
migration act.

Critics of the U.N. proposal, which Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
intends to sign, contend that it will give away Canada’s sovereign right to
control the border regarding illegal migrants.

A CTV poll says 88 per cent of Canadians are against signing that U.N. policy.

So far, 20 countries, lead by the U.S., say they will not sign that pact.

Rallies are planned for tomorrow (Sat) on Parliament Hill, Toronto, Hamilton,
Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver.
