Realtors Organize Street Cleanup

Some streets on the east side and in the valley are going to look a lot cleaner today thanks to the work of some dedicated professionals. President of the Saint John Real Estate Board Jason Stephen tells CHSJ News it's a way for realtors to pay it forward in the communities they serve.

Over 4,000 acres of parks and green spaces across Southwest New Brunswick were cleaned up by realtors in 2011. This year the teams will be tackling the streets and sidewalks of local residential areas.

Workers Killed on the Job Honoured

It's year 2 for the annual Day of Mourning ceremony remembering those injured or killed on the job in the province at the Hatheway Pavillion at Lily Lake.

Pat Riley of the International Longshoreman Association tells CHSJ News the observance has spread internationally to dozens of countries, who will hold ceremonies similar to that here in Saint John.

There will be a ceremony today attended by 30 unions and family members in honour of people who lost their lives at work. Sharon Tucker from WorkSafe NB will say a few words.
