Pre-Earth Day Hike



Can't wait for Wednesday to start celebrating Earth Day? Well Dave Thompson with the Conservation Council is inviting everyone to come out to Mispec Park for an Earth Day Hike.
Thompson says the hike is to get people prepared for earth day, and a earth friendly way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon.
The hike gets started at 1 o'clock, and is approximately 1 and a half kilometres.

Several Police Incidents in the City



One man is in custody after a shooting incident on Main Street North early this morning.
Around 5 am police responded to several shots fired on the the street, and confirm arresting one male and the seizure of a firearm.

There were also shots fired just outside the IceBerg Pub on Union Street last night around midnight.
Police say the shooter took off shortly afterwords, and are investigating.

Also in the early hours of this morning a woman was mugged while walking on Rothesay Avenue. While walking several young people jumped her from behind, and made off with some personal items. She was not injured.

Reckless Driver Facing Charges



A police spot check is the reason a 33 year old man stepped on the gas to escape the long arm of the arm of the law last night, only to wind up in custody.
Police pulled a vehicle over on Chesley Drive around 8 o'clock and the driver fled as the officer left his vehicle.
Police could not pursue due to traffic, and the vehicle slammed into a van on the Reversing Falls Bridge.
There were two adults and two children in the van, and the 27 year old mother was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
The driver was arrested for reckless driving, and police say he sped off because of an existing warrant.

Sussex ER Closed



It will be a tense weekend for all those living in the Greater Sussex Area. The Region B Health Authority has shut down the Emergency Department at the Sussex Health Center because there is no doctor to cover off the shift today and into tomorrow. That means the ER is closed to all emergencies between 10:30pm tonight and eight o’clock tomorrow morning.

If you require emergency service, dial 911 or make your way to the Regional here in Saint John or one of the two hospitals in Moncton.
