A Bigger And Better Trail For Hampton

The Trans Canada Trail will be extended all the way through Hampton thanks to 100 thousand dollars in federal funding and another 100 thousand from the town. 

That announcement being made by Fundy-Royal M-P Rob Moore who's now the federal minister for New Brunswick. He tells CHSJ News the Spooner Island Bridge will be replaced and new portions of trail will be constructed.

The M-L-A for Hampton Kings, Bev Harrison says Moore's elevation in the federal cabinet which includes responsibility for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency spells good news for the area.

Moore says he wants to spur economic development and, to that end, believes the business case has been made for the West to East pipeline to be constructed all the way to Saint John.
