Lost Mom and Child Rescued

Scary times for a mother and her 6 year old son lost in the woods outside of Prince of Wales--but they made it home safe.

The pair found themselves lost off a hiking trail after dark last night. The lady called her husband, who got some friends together and went in to find them. By the time they did, the mother was too cold and weak to make it out on her own.

At 8:30pm RCMP contacted the Musquash Fire Department, asking for a boat to remove the people via the water. A small boat made its way from the Prince of Wales wharf to where they were located.

The mother and son were transported to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

This was the first non-fire related rescue for  Musquash Fire Department, after deciding in December that it would respond to off-road, boat and water-related incidents.

Possible Legal Action Continues To Hang Over Lepreau Upgrade

Premier Alward is keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to the possibility of legal action over cost overruns associated with the Point Lepreau upgrade.
Alward tells CHSJ News he's said from the beginning his government will do whatever is necessary with the Lepreau issue - but - at this point in time he believes the right thing is to be doing the work needed to get the nuclear power plant back online.
Atomic Energy of Canada has experienced a number of problems as it replaced fuel channels in the reactor at the nuclear power plant with start up now scheduled for September of this year -- three years late.
N-B Power says it's paying a million dollars a day for replacement power since the plant went offline.
