Armstrong could not confirm whether the men were lobster fishermen.

Rothesay Offers Chat About Amalgamation To Quispamsis

Rothesay town council is inviting Quispamsis to have a discussion on amalgamation.

Mayor Bill Bishop tells CHSJ News it does not mean amalgamation is happening but rather to see if Quispamsis is interested in talking about it.

He says if things do progress further down the road, a third party would most likely be brought in to report on the matter.

But if Quispamsis is not interested, then the idea will be dropped.
