#MurderSentenceAppeal (because sentence not long enough)
In July, Tyler Noel was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Moncton teenager Baylee Wylie... but Noel gets the chance for parole in 16 years... the Crown wants to appeal because: sentence not long enough... What happened? Noel was going to be tried for first-degree murder (that would've meant longer in prison) but he ended up pleading guilty to second-degree murder...
The Crown had asked for no parole for at least 20-25 years, but that didn't happen...


#Moncton #Mayor says 'Don't spray Glyphosate herbicide near our drinking water'...
Mayor Dawn Arnold wants the province to stop the spraying of Glyphosate (herbicide) near Turtle Creek Reservoir...
-Glyphosate is on the list of things that "probably causes cancer" according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer & the World Health Organization.
-Health Canada says we need Glyphosate for Canadian agriculture and the potential risk to people and the environment is in acceptable range (Seems like the Province has a similar view as the Feds)
(BTW, This aint the first time Glyphosate has come up in some kind of controversy in the Prov...)
