I am not one to pit one city against the other in New Brunswick, but the announcement yesterday of funding for a convention centre in Fredericton must be a little frustrating for the guys/gals at city hall in Moncton. Who knows, there may be an announcement coming for Moncton too. But for now, the facts are that Moncton has been lobbying for a convention centre for years – I think it must be close to a decade now.
And Freddy gets the upper hand.
But even more curious is the fact that the Moncton Times & Transcript doesn’t seem to even have any coverage of this topic. The Telegraph and the Gleaner both have major stories. I haven’t seen the print edition of the T&T but it must be in there.
