Getting dangerous in the Capital!!!
Minister of Social Development gives Blogger an update of the latest of the people lost lost everything in the Rooming House Fire on Carleton Street in Fredericton!!!
Charles, here is an update on the lodging requirements for Social Development clients that are staying at the Fredericton Inn because of the fire at their rooming house.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to find another location for the clients to stay while the search for new homes takes place.
Please note that the Department of Social Development will continue to provide for clients with temporary accommodations. But because the Fredericton Inn is unable to accommodate our lodging needs, alternate lodging has been arranged at Howard Johnson, located at 958 Prospect Street, Fredericton. Vouchers for meals will be provided by the hotel.
Check out from the Fredericton Inn is to take place late Monday morning (October 15). Transportation to Howard Johnson will be provided by a local taxi company and Social Development staff will be present at both hotels to provide clients with assistance.
Again, Charles I am pleased to say that housing options have been found just about all of the 24 clients that have been displaced because of the fire. The moves, if they haven’t occurred yet, will take place when the homes are ready. Social Development will continue to provide clients with shelter at Howard Johnson until their move in dates.
Frank McKenna became Premier of New Brunswick 25 years ago tonight!!!! Do you remember where you were????
Where was I???
Well, I'm not ashamed of saying that I was with a hot woman in a rooming house on Kennedy Street in the North End of Saint John watching the Election.
It was an era that I just came from Boston and working at the Shipyard in Saint John.
Months later, I came face to face with Frank McKenna and pointly asked him - Frank?You have a Pie with 58 slice? How do you plan to satisfy every slice Frank?
He looked at me and said - It's going to be difficult!!!
Of course it was also an era that the information highway just began and Frank was a big fan of my letters to the Editor.
He always made time for the guy who wrote many letters to the Editor.
I might add that Frank McKenna always replied to his email.
One my goal would be to have my picture taken with Frank and David Alward because these are the only Premier who replied to their emails.
Camille Theriault, Bernard Lord and Shawn Graham never did!!!
I was arrested in Saint John a couple of weeks after this picture was taken -
Ohhhhh...it would have have great to be a Blogger in the Capital with all 58 MLA'S around the Legislature.
Did they all take the side door of the Legislature??? < as they do today >
Yes....where were you 25 years ago tonight????
Yes.....Beside having good flashbacks with that hot woman? It was a moment in history that will never happen again in Canada!!!
P.S. I remember telling her that I will never forget this moment for the rest of life.
She replied- Ahhhh Thanks Charles....
I replied - Yes....I'll never forget where I was when Frank McKenna won all 58 ridings in 1987!!
I got a slap for that one!! Still hurts!!...:P
Here's someone that was there!!!!

The Book - Fredericton : The Celebration will be available tomorrow < Saturday > at the Westminster Book Store on Queen Street!!!!
Fredericton and its people subject of new book
What do Matt Stairs, Premier David Alward, David Adams Richards and Charles LeBlanc have in common? They're all featured in the new book, "Fredericton: The Celebration". Written by Carlena Munn, the book profiles more than 65 individuals, families, businesses, and local celebrities. She says, when she became ill in the spring of 2010 and could no longer work, she took time to reflect about what life had in store for her next, and whether she would remain in the city...
Munn says she's amazed at how much Fredericton has to offer and the inspiring people who live here. Proceeds from the sale of the book will be split between the Fredericton Food Bank and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.
