ROSELAND CABARET CUTTING BACK HOURS
Saturday 1st August 2015
The Roseland Cabaret is changing its hours of operation. Complaints were filed with the Utility and Review Board several months ago by the town of New Glasgow, a local physician, and members of the Municipal Alcohol Project Community Action Committee, concerned that the late hours of operation were leading to excessive drinking, violence and injuries. The owners of the Roseland have agreed to bring their hours of operation in line with other local bars by no longer serving alcohol after 2am, and closing at 2:30. The complaints to the Review Board were subsequently withdrawn.


BOARD SAYS IT WON'T RE-OPEN RIVER JOHN DEBATE
Saturday 1st August 2015
The citizens of River John have hit a dead end in their attempt to revive their school. In a recent meeting, the premier and education minister encouraged the River John SOS committee to go back to the School Board to persuade them to revisit their decision to close the school. But in a letter sent to the committee on Friday, the board says it wont meet again to discuss the River John Hub proposal, as the budget for the next fiscal year has been passed. Many members of the SOS group say that while the Board's decision is a setback, they will continue to look for ways to save their school.


NEW GAS PIPELINE CONNECTION TO BE FINISHED TODAY
Saturday 1st August 2015
Work to join a natural gas pipeline on both sides of the East River should be completed today. Work began two weeks ago to bore through the bedrock underneath the river to connect the pipe on the West Side to the East Side, Trenton and Stellarton. Heritage Gas says gas should begin to flow through the new lines by early September.


NB MAN SAVED WITH HELP OF AUTOMATED DEFRIBRILLATOR
Saturday 1st August 2015
A New Brunswick man is alive thanks to some quick-thinking bystanders and a public-access life-saving machine that was nearby only through a strange twist of circumstance. Forty-six-year-old Eugene Manuel was competing in a fitness challenge at his local gym in Miramichi on July 11th when his heart suddenly stopped beating. A bystander sprinted to the Tim Horton's next door, remembering there was an automatic external defibrillator, or AED, inside. The defribrillator was in the store in honour of local man Pat O'Kane, who suffered a cardiac arrest in downtown Miramichi six years prior, when there was no defibrillator in the area.


ONTARIO WOMAN CHARGED WITH IMPAIRED DRIVING NEAR MILLBROOK
Saturday 1st August 2015
A 59-year-old woman from Ontario is facing impaired driving charges after the R-C-M-P in Nova Scotia say a breathalyzer found her blood alcohol level was nearly three and a half times the legal limit. Police responded to a 9-1-1 call around 2 p.m. yesterday reporting an erratic driver on Highway 1-02 near Millbrook. The vehicle was described as swerving in and out of its lane at a very slow speed, causing other motorists to take evasive actions to avoid collisions. The woman is due in Truro Provincial Court on September 23rd.


PACIFIC TRADE TALKS FIZZLE OUT
Saturday 1st August 2015
Negotiators for Canada, the U-S, and 10 other countries have failed to finalize a deal to create the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- the biggest free trade zone in history. They left their meeting in Hawaii without reaching a deal -- and without setting a date for their next round of talks. Last night, Prime Minister Harper was waiting in Ottawa, ready to announce an agreement. However, after the talks in Hawaii broke up, Harper's planned announcement never happened.


NO HARPER AT DEBATES, NO MULCAIR: NDP
Saturday 1st August 2015
The N-D-P says Tom Mulcair won't participate in any leaders' debates during the election campaign if they don't include Stephen Harper. The condition likely kills any chance of the traditional debates hosted by a consortium of Canada's largest broadcasters happening. The Conservative party has already ruled out Harper's participation in the consortium debates -- one French, one English, proposed to take place less than two weeks before the expected October 19th vote. It's doubtful the consortium will press ahead with its proposal without two of the three main party leaders. Green party Leader Elizabeth May is furious -- accusing Mulcair of colluding with Harper to kill off the debates that would have the widest audience. May claims it's all aimed at keeping her off centre stage throughout the campaign -- and that it "stinks to high heaven."
