SAINT JOHN • A proposed levy by NB Power to introduce temporary surcharges after unexpected weather events could add a much-needed layer of transparency for the utility's missed targets, says a utility watchdog.
But the "devil's in the details," said public intervener Heather Black Monday outside of a hearing before the Energy Utilities Board to decide on an application by NB Power to hike power rates, as well as create a special weather levy.

If you own a business, you may already be familiar with the concept of passive investment income in a corporation. In…

Nobody wants to cause a highway accident. But drivers don't always drive carefully enough to prevent them.
That's why strong safety laws with provisions for tough penalties are necessary.
Last week, New Brunswick MLAs voted in favour of an opposition motion calling for a public education campaign about the province's 'move-over' law, which is aimed at improving safety for police and other emergency responders stopped on the side of a highway.
Democracy belongs to the people
The New Brunswick legislature is now closed until after the provincial election. Keeping focused will be a key for this upcoming provincial election.
There have been challenges over the course of the last few years. To name a few: a proposed claw-back of financial assets to pay for nursing care facilities (disclosure of bank accounts, declaring assets); the property tax scandal; the health-care system is too…
Think of addiction. When I went through school in Miramichi the subject was taboo, never mentioned in our house. Through my teens I’d sometimes hear of drug addicts shooting up on sordid streets in far-off cities. Addiction was somewhere else.
These days, if you put me in a room with 20 random Canadians, I’ll bet you a week’s pay at least two are addicted to something. To exactly what is the skill-testing question.
Canadians love meat, but other sources of protein are emerging as potent alternatives. Demand is up for vegetable proteins like pulses, as well as for fish and seafood. Loblaw has even started selling cricket flour and is trying to make insect consumption mainstream.
That’s led some people to believe that vegetarian and vegan segments of the Canadian population are on the rise.
Not so much.
According to a recent poll conducted by Dalhousie…

Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider reboot looks like a heroine of the moment. Gone are the Daisy Dukes and knee-high boots of Angelina Jolie's 2001 version of the character. This incarnation, played by Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander, wears a hoodie and cargo pants, spending her days biking around London delivering food – when she's not brawling at the kickboxing gym.
You'd never know she's the heir to a massive fortune. In fact, Lara could cash in…
The unnamed American suburb where Love, Simon takes place is as generic as Call Me By Your Name's setting of Crema, Italy, is specific. Yet both places prove to be remarkably sunny locales for an earnest teenager to come out as gay.
The first major-studio romantic comedy with a teen protagonist who's closeted, Love, Simon is basically a sitcom counterpart to last year's Oscar-nominated Call Me – down to the culminating heart-to-heart with a…
If there is a lesson to take away from the first two seasons of The Crown, it is that no sane person would dare cross Queen Elizabeth II.
Netflix seems to have learned this too late, however, as it was revealed on Tuesday that lead actress Claire Foy made less than co-star Matt Smith for her work on the show.
Variety reported that producers Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries were asked during a discussion at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem whether…

In New Brunswick, more than 40 per cent of vehicle occupants who die in a collision are not wearing their seat belt. Many of these lives can be spared if only a seat belt is used: GNB website.

With roughly 20 per cent of New Brunswickers claiming Irish ancestry, according to the 2016 census, many of us have reason to celebrate March 17th in one way or another. This collection of snippets shows in succinct fashion how others have done so for a very long time. Hopefully, the reader will be amused or inspired by past celebrations to make the most of what remains of March 17th in this year 2018.
It is Saint Patrick's time of the year again. True, his birthday is still celebrated on March 17, but Saint Patrick seems to be expanding even as we speak. Before too long we shall celebrate Saint Patrick's Week.
If you think perhaps we give the storied Saint more than his due, a document just now crossing my desk seems to give the nod to that idea. The celebrants took to the streets as early as March 11 to see the Irish flag raised in front of…
Who were your heroes growing up?
My parents and older brother. My father ran his roofing business with an ethic of community service. My mother had an eye for beauty and a sense of doing things right. My brother took to the woods and I followed in his footsteps.
What do you treasure most about New Brunswick?
The people and landscape of the central St. John River region. The people are community-minded and the landscape is a wonderful blend of…
It took a while for Patrick Keating to figure out what he wanted to do in life. His search for community and purpose lead him down a strange path, filled with drug addiction and three different stays in federal penitentiaries. All together, Keating spent over 10 years in prison. So what ended up breaking his cycle of crime? Theatre.
During his last prison stay, in a penitentiary in northern British Columbia, a theatre company from Vancouver came…
The first patches of green were pretty easy to find. All I had to do was look up and I could see them flying right over me.
Green has been on my mind a lot lately. Driving around among seemingly endless snow-covered Alberta fields, even under sunny blue skies, has left me longing for, well, pretty much any colour. Beautiful though the winter landscape is, a world filled with white and blue can get a little monotonous after a while.
Samaqani Cocahq (Natalie Sappier), an aboriginal singer and dancer turned playwright from Tobique First Nation, fell in love with theatre in 2014 when she first became involved with Theatre New Brunswick in Fredericton.
Artistic director Thomas Morgan Jones gave her the encouragement and confidence she needed to focus on bringing her writing and storytelling to the stage, she says.
“I met with him and he told me I had to keep going. That’s…
