The horse racing folks are campaigning to take control of NBEX board in an attempt to keep a race track in downtown #Fredericton and putting at risk the redevelopment plans for this property. +
If this group “seize” the race track, it means the loss of 800 to 1,200 dwelling units that includes affordable housing with mixed-income housing accessible to low income residents and the development of 1.1-million sqft. #Fredericton +
Fredericton has an acute need for housing that is affordable to a diverse range of people including seniors, students, newcomers and low income & vulnerable population.

Vacancy is historically low (1%) and homelessness / sleeping rough is increasing. #Fredericton +

Hey Americans. We need immigrants & would love to have you. Here’s my plug for #NewBrunswick, Canada. Safe, affordable, and pretty much COVID-free. Free healthcare, cheap university, and very very little chance your kids will be shot at school. #movingtocanada #Elections2020
In capital city #Fredericton, average family detached home costs $189K CDN, which equates to $144K US. That’s right. Did I mention your US dollars go 30% farther here? Check us out by following #frederictonnb on Insta. Fredericton has 90km of bike/running/commute trails too.
You might also consider Saint John, aka #saintawesome. Huge opportunity here and amazing waterfront urban neighborhoods and suburbs. This was our backyard when we lived there. Amazing urban scene and great restaurants. #movingtocanada #Elections2020

Now, at the #Fredericton courthouse for a Matthew Vincent Raymond appearance. We’re expecting to hear if a doctor’s report has been filed with the court, after Raymond’s 60-day treatment.
@CTVAtlantic Image
It’s become normal to get started late. Court proceedings have just begun, 30 minutes late. Raymond is present in court. He has a greying beard, wearing an orange sweater.
A publication ban has been placed on proceedings right now, but that will be reviewed at the end of the appearance.

Liberal MLA Stephen Horsman asks about the Fredericton courthouse -
Centennial Building was to become a new courthouse but the Higgs government halted the project last year.
We've been waiting to hear what will happen to it now.

@CTVAtlantic Bill Oliver, Transportation Minister, says he will be making "other announcements" about the future of both the Fredericton courthouse, and what's left of the Centennial Building. #nbpoli
Over $13 million has been spent on the building, before construction halted last year. So it’s been sitting as is, with a construction fence around it, in downtown #Fredericton, for a year now. Image

City of Fredericton has released a report outlining what they heard during flood meetings with residents over the summer. It’s interesting to read what people were most concerned about, and the city’s response.
Like this one - the list of check-ins EMO/city do:

@CTVAtlantic Image
There was a portion on climate action.
Some told the city they want less drive-through restaurants so that there’s a decrease in vehicle idling.

City: new drive-throughs haven’t been allowed for a while now.

#fredericton #flooding Image
On infrastructure, people suggested raising some downtown intersections.

City: over next decade, we’re considering that, as well as “valving of the storm sewers.”

We’re at Liberal incumbent Sean Casey’s Charlottetown HQ -

Former MP for this riding, Shawn Murphy, is here.
He says there had been a Green boost since the provincial election, but is confident Casey has this riding. Casey originally elected in 2011. #cdnpoli #elxn43 Image
Greens are strong in most Island ridings this election. Charlottetown has been Liberal since 1988. #cdnpoli #elxn43

I’m at the Grant Harvey Centre in #Fredericton for jury selection. The jury will determine if Matthew Raymond is fit to stand trial. @CTVAtlantic Image
Raymond is accused of killing four people in a shooting on the city’s north side in August 2018.
Jury selection is at the arena because of the large number of potential jurors called for the case.
