To Burn Or Not To Burn

To burn or not to burn... it depends on your city, the weather, the size of the fire and other variables.

When it comes to Saint John,  Mark Wilson of the Fire Department tells CHSJ news open burning isn't allowed in city limits. What is allowed to burn is approved fire appliances, and products that have a safety standard sticker on them along with spark resisters.

Wilson recommends people to be careful when burning, adding you should burn 'clean' wood, have water nearby, and watch your distance to other combustibles.

Cross Canada Biking For Cancer

One woman in the province is gearing up for a nation wide cycle event to raise funds to childhood cancer.

Shelley Wood is half way to her goal of raising $2,500 dollars for the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride. She tells CHSJ news the ride goes for over 2 weeks, starting on September 5th in Vancouver and ending 17 days later in Halifax. They ride in relay style, where one team will go 160 km a day, then another will go over 200km, leap frogging each other.

Wood's compares the ride to 8 spin classes, or biking for 6 hours a day.
