WAS MLA T.J BURKE THREATENED BECAUSE OF ATCON????

img_6047img_1484

Don't the public have a right to know what exactly happened here???

Charles,

The guy was a construction worker and was pissed that Atcon got money from the government but his company didn't receive any help, and he lost his job. Something like that.

He went to T.J.'s office because, I think, he is a resident of that riding.

That's what I heard. threatened

Listen to what the Leader of the Green Party Jack MacDougall has to say about Atcon!!

Charles,

Folks in churches of every denomination attend ALPHA programs all over the world.

They attend to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life. Still others may have attended church on and off throughout their lives but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.

Tuesday, September 14 is your opportunity to register for the Fall ALPHA here at BSBC.

Come at 6 pm for dinner, enjoy fellowship and music and begin the video journey into a better understanding of Christianity.

ALPHA will continue weekly until November 23. Childcare is provided and you will be on your way
home by 9 pm – well fed, well learned and well... maybe with a few questions

Carl Urquhart can now give two KIdneys!!!

Blogger to Professor Andrea Bear Nicholas - IF YOU DON'T VOTE IN THIS ELECTION THEREFORE SHUT UP FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS!!

img_6287


The CBC host asked Andrea Bear Nicholas if she plan to vote in the Provincial Election?

She answered- No!!!

She said that it doesn't matter because the Natives are only 1% of the population.

BOY???? WHAT AN ATTITUDE!!!

She better shut up during the next years because in my humble opinion?

If you don't vote? Don't Bitch!!!

Sigh...what an attitude this woman has. A disgrace to the young Natives!!!

P.S I listened to her this morning on Information morning and I agree with her 100% that the Natives should have a school in their language.

But to say- DON'T VOTE!!!

Sorry...you lost my respect!!!

:(

Almost lost my bike to a smart spaced out cadet!!!

I walked into Dick's Convenience Store on Westmorland Street.

While chatting with someone inside the store, I noticed someone riding off with my bike.

You know just like the Dumb Blonde to the Police Officer- I didn't know I was speeding officer...

GO VOTE FOR ANDY BROWN AT andybrown.ca

VoteAndyBrown

Here's Andy Brown video -

Pretty good!

Click below -






I never met the guy so I interviewed the guy yesterday.

Click below for youtube -





Local indie folk band, Andy Brown, has landed a top 5 spot in the coveted North American-wide Test Drive 2010 music competition, sponsored by industry leaders Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings. While the band has already won a pair of Taylor guitars and a supply of Elixir strings and cables, the competition is far from over and Andy Brown needs his fans’ support to take home the top prize, two days of recording time in New York City’s Tainted Blue studio and a formal artist relationship with Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings.



In April of 2010, local musician, Andy Brown, applied for a music competition through SonicBids with hopes of gaining North American-wide exposure. A couple of months later Brown learned that his band was in the running, amongst almost 1,000 other musicians, for the top prize.



With the help of a solid fan base voting for the Fredericton-based band, Andy Brown landed a spot among the top 50 North American artists vying for a chance to move on to round two of the Test Drive 2010 music competition. After the Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings representatives deliberated on originality, professionalism of recordings, marketability and an essay, Brown became one of five finalists to move on to round two of the competition.



“To make it this far is a huge accomplishment,” says Brown. “To think that enough fans voted for us every day to help us make it into the round two of the competition, well, it speaks volumes about the people who love our music. And the voting process was lengthy too. Their continuous support is why we made it this far. Hopefully our fans have lots of voting power left in them for round two.”



As a prize for making it to round two, the final phase of the competition, two Taylor Guitars and a supply of Elixir strings and cables were shipped to Brown. Round two of the competition required Brown to showcase the prizes in a unique video, again, to be voted on by fans.



Paul McAllister, co-founder of Feelsgood.ca and Folly Fest, was on-board to film the video and producer of Brown’s latest album, Brad Perry, brought the band into the studio to record a new song, specifically for the competition.



“The song, Happiness, is about love,” explains Brown. “It’s about knowing who you want to be with and the simple things about love. The video definitely plays on this concept, but in a cheeky, memorable way. It’s funny but you’ll find that it’s very sincere.”



Only one of two of Canadian musicians in the top five, Brown is confident that his video’s unique concept and new song, now a fan favourite at live shows, will draw in the votes needed to take home the top prize.



“Winning this would change our lives,” says Brown. “We’re ready for this. Although our second album, False Alarm, was released a year ago, we’re working on the songs for our next album. And yes, Happiness will make it onto that one. To think that we could end up with a formal artist relationship with Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings and record at Tainted Blue would truly be a dream come true.”



Voting for Brown runs until September 15, 2010.

IMG_1415



I guess this is sort of a promotion on her part. I’m sad to see her go because you’ll never hear someone say something bad about this television reporter.

She’s a sweetheart who makes the people she interviews feel at ease.



IMG_5489IMG_3784



It’s going to be different not seeing Allison around during a media scrum.
.


IMG_5456_editedIMG_5467_editedIMG_6373



I’m sure that I speak for a lot of readers by saying - Bonne Chance Allison and please be safe.

P.S. How come we’re losing all the cutties to the other provinces? ..lol
