Wed. August 2: Interview with Todd Veinotte with SSNB spokes person Dr. Caroline Lubbe-D’Arcy . It is a 30 minute interview which allowed Caroline to touch on spraying, our coalition with other groups, the GLARING ABSENCE of CBC, the TJ journalist but no article yet (although a very slanted article did finally appear in the Times & Transcript on August 8’17), and zero interest from nbpoli. Caroline highlighted the farce that is ‘NB Forest Management’, and the job numbers that are low. Here’s a link to the show (the interview starts at 22 minutes): https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-rraea-6df039
August 11’17: In the studio with Buzzlocal.tv (7 minutes) about SSNB, why we should be concerned about forest and NB Power spraying, the suffering deer population and how a Facebook group became a registered ngo.
