Downtown Fredericton Inc gives free money to its citizens at Officer's Square.

I heard on the radio that Money will be thrown away by Firemen at Officer's Square.

Of this is all the work of Downtown Fredericton.

Now? Lets go back to last year event.

Click below for youtubes -







It was a near disaster because the wind blew the coupons on the streets and in the fountain.

People were going nuts just to catch a coupon.

So this year Downtown Fredericton decided to hold the event at Officer's Square.

I noticed a couple of the less fortunate in the crowd.

They asked - Is this really money Charles?

lol I told them it was only coupons. You need money in the first place to buy these items at a discount price.

If it would have indeed been real cash? It would have been a riot. There would have been more people in the Square than the time Olympic Flame was in the area.

So? What was this blogger going to do? Where can I get the best shots?

I asked the Firemen if I could give them my camera so they could take some pictures from the bucket?

As in past practice, they directed me to this guy!!!



I can never get nothing from the Firemen. I always must chat with the Boss!

He had no problem so I was ready to hand my camera to the firemen. Then suddenly the Boss had a second opinion and told me it wouldn't be a good idea!!!

Sigh...I hope it wasn't because he saw my Blogger jacket???

You know Irving's employees only?

Oh well!!!

I found a spot and took a few shots!!!!

img_5781img_5785

Ok...lets get this show on the road!!!


img_5787img_5788img_5789


I shouted - HERE GUYS!!! TAKE MY CAMERA!!!!!


img_5790


I didn't care who took the pictures. I don't have to be in the bucket. But the Boss didn't feel they could take pictures while throwing the paper money away?

Oh well...I had a good spot anyway.


img_5791img_5796


Then it was time for the big event!!!!

At the last second, I decided to do a video!!!!

Click below for the youtube -





My God? Some people went nuts for a coupon. A few of the papers were stuck in the tree branch. People were shaking the tree till the coupon came loose.

Once on the ground, A woman in her 40s came and chat with me nicely and then noticed a Five dollars coupon near my feet.

She quickly grabbed the coupon and walked away.

One kid shouted to her parents- That was my coupon Mommy???

Sad!!!

Beside that? I believe everything went well!!!!

Originally uploaded by Oldmaison
Hey Charles,

Don't know if you have heard or not but there is a bit of controversy up at UNB. The Student Union just voted to take away the voting rights of the international student councilor. They will be discussing this matter again on Monday at 5 in room 126 of the SUB if you want to check it out. You can read about it here:

CTV BREAKING NEWS - MANY STUDENTS AT DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY ARE USING RITALIN TO PASS THEIR EXAMS!!!! ALSO RITALIN IS THE DRUG OF CHOICE IN FREDERICTON!

img_5636127234472_dc3d514cfe


I posted this story last year.

http://oldmaison.blogspot.com/2008/02/very-large-pourcentage-of-students-at.html

I can't find the blog that I wrote years ago about students at UNB and STU using Ritalin to pass their exams.

Many of them are using Ritalin to get high.

This ADHD girl told CTV News she's being bothered all the time for Ritalin by students. She added she refuses to give them her prescription.


img_5643img_5639




Yes....how time have change eh? People with ADHD were loners but these days? Everyone wants to be your friend so they can some ritalin.

Many of these students believe they can't be addicted to the Prescription Drug.


img_5640

That's pure Bullshit!!

I heard many stories during my Six months protest in front of the New Brunswick Legislature.

Click for Protest -

Stories of my Six Months protest in front of the New Brunswick Legislature


I was told that many kids who were forced on Ritalin turned to higher drugs later on in life.

A few months ago someone told me that Ritalin is the Drug of choice on the streets in Fredericton!!


127234472_dc3d514cfe


I was approached on a few occasions asking me if I would sell them some Ritalin?

Sure? I could get the pills from my Doctor and make some good money on the side but I'm not interested.

Where are these Ritalin coming from anyway?

Yes, we do have a generation that are dependant on Prescription drugs and it's very scary what the future holds for these individuals.

Again???? WHERE ARE THESE PILLS COMING FROM????
