NB-Storm

RCMP were recomending people stay off the highways as another storm blasted
New Brunswick yesterday…and many did. It was mostly snow in the north and
rain and freezing rain in the south making travel treacherous yesterday.

There were lots of cancellations including the Timberwolves-Tigers M-H-L game
in Campbellton.

Flights were also cancelled or delayed and Maritime Bus cancelled its trips.
City buses in Moncton and Saint John stayed on the streets although some
routes were cancelled because of icy hills.

Only a few dozen people south of Miramichi are without power this morning and
a couple of customers on the Acadian Peninsula.

NB – SNOWMOBILE FATAL
Police say New Brunswick man has died after his snowmobile was struck by a
car.

The R-C-M-P say the 49-year-old died at the scene of the Friday evening crash
on Beardsley Road in Lower Woodstock.

Police believe the car struck the snowmobile as it was crossing the road from
a trail.

The investigation is ongoing.

NUCLEAR OOPS
It was a false alarm that created true panic.

The unintended Sunday morning 7:30 a-m release of an Ontario-wide alert about
an ”incident” at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station has prompted a
provincial investigation.

The province says the error occurred during a routine training exercise being
conducted by the Provincial Emergency Operations Centre.

But the alert was sent to radios, televisions and cellphones right across the
province.

ALL-Arctic-Shipping-Pledge
Environmental groups are applauding international shippers and shipping
companies that have promised to stay away from Arctic routes.

The Ocean Conservancy says a total of 21 companies have signed a pledge.
That means signatories that produce consumer goods _ including Nike, Puma,
Columbia and Ralph Lauren _ will ensure their products aren’t shipped along
routes that go through the Arctic.

The Ocean Conservancy says signatories control about one-third of the
shipping industry by market share.
