Angry After 8 Days Without Power

One Kingston resident says she has a few choice words for the Premier on how the power outage resulting from the ice storm is being handled.

Bonnie Dearing tells CHSJ News she lives at 4 Princess Beach Road and has been without power since December 22nd.

She wonders why the province wouldn't declare an emergency so the federal government can send in troops to give power crews a hand in clearing downed trees and branches and to spread generators around.

Dearing says she is better off than some because has a propane heater and a propane cook stove so she has been melting water for snow and its an all day job.

CHSJ News asked Dearing if she feels the Kingston residents are being forgotten and she responded by saying it feels like all of Southern New Brunswick has been forgotten.
