Commentary: Liberals are confused once again

By Pierre Little
 
The Telegraph-Journal is reporting tonight that there is a new rule that family doctors will not be allowed to refuse a patients demand for an abortion and must provide a referral if they refuse on conscientious or religious grounds.
 
The repeal will have extreme consequences for any physician in the province and it's beginning to looks like the former McKenna government's medically needed requirement was an astute and balanced approach to the problem.
 
Even with all the accolades from feminist groups, Pro-abortion advocates have not been given what they have asked for.  Their wish was for private on demand abortion clinic Medicare funding. So the recent change in policy is a hollow victory.

New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance Looks between the Lines of the Electoral Debate

By www.noshalegasnb.ca   

Moncton, NB (17 Sept 2014) : New Brunswickers who are looking for the facts about shale gas are not getting them from the current political debate. They are often being deliberately misled or else are confused by politicians who don’t understand the issues, themselves. And they are definitely missing out on critical information.

 

First, the economics.

Education vital to a strong middle class

 

Dear Editor,

 

The very idea of progress is under real threat in Canada for the first time in generations. The Canadian promise, that if you get educated and work hard, you can guarantee a better life for yourself and for your kids, is being seriously questioned.

Rogersville's new Municipal Buildings targeted by arsonist

By Pierre Little

Fire reportedly set Saturday morning around 11 a.m.  The newly constructed municipal offices was the target of an arsonist.  RCMP are saying someone intentionally threw an incendiary device on the roof in the early morning hours on Saturday May 4 and are seeking the publics help.  The new facility was being built because fire completely destroyed the municipal offices in January of last year.  The Mayors offices, RCMP and Fire Department were in the same building last year and all offices and equipement were lost [see photos and video below].  The new facility also has all three community offices, mayor, police and fire, together once again.
