Close But No Cigar For The Bay Of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy misses out as one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The bay had been the only contender from Canada and one of a group of 28 finalists that included the Galapagos Islands, the Grand Canyon and Mount Vesuvius, all of which did not make the list.

The Great Barrier Reef, the Dead Sea, the Amazon River and Mount Kilimanjaro were among the sites that did make the cut.

All of the publicity generated by the campaign is believed to be worth something like 8 million dollars in advertising for the Bay of Fundy.

Remembrance Day Ceremony Brings Out Thousands

Saint Johners paying their utmost respect to our war veterans as thousands made the wet trek to Harbour Station for this year's Remembrance Day ceremony.

The army, police, and fire were just some of the groups taking part in the parade and ceremony.

89-year old veteran Gill Kenny fought in the Battle of the Atlantic and he tells CHSJ News he's happy to be here and enjoy the freedom that he and his friends fought for.

He says respect for veterans has grown over the years because veterans have begun to open up and share their stories.

Police Remind You To Lock Your Car Doors

It may seem like common sense but police are sending out a familiar reminder -- lock your car doors and take your valuables with you.

Police say there have been recent thefts in the city but the majority have been in the Fundy Heights Area.

If something has been taken from your car, you're being encouraged to still report the crime to police or if you see any suspicious activity.

Home Invasion In French Village

No one hurt in a home invasion last night in French Village.  Police got the call around 7 o'clock -- police say up to 3 suspects went into a home armed with a handgun and stole a large amount of cash.  A man and a child were home at the time but no one was hurt.

Police believe that the crime was not random.
