CAM – HEALTH COURSES
Campbellton-Dalhousie MLA Guy Arseneault has waded into the ongoing health
care issues in Northern New Brunswick with a suggestion around training.

Arseneault tells the Tribune to deal with the health care crisis more
training courses should be offered at the NBCC Campbellton campus.

The Liberal MLA says something is needed for our own people when they
graduate so they can stay here.

During meetings with Vitalite and Social Development Minister Dorothy
Shepherd, Arseneault was told staffing shortages are the main driver of the
issues.

Arseneault says this is an urgent matter because as the population ages the
current crisis is like the canary in the mine.

CAM – MOVE THE SNOW
Campbellton City Councillor Fred Daigle says he got quite a few calls about
snow removal after the first real snowfall of the year.

According to the Tribune Daigle asked at council earlier this week what the
protocol was for clearing downtown streets.

CAO Manon Cloutier said crews allow the snow to accumulate some before
removing but Councillor Marco Savoie wondered if there should be a special
downtown crew as businesses are open.

Superintendent of public works Ken Garrett has said in the past trying to
remove less than 4-centimeters would be pointless and expensive.
