We got a note from Mathieu Hachey... he and his daughter are setting up collection boxes for pop tabs to help the Shriners Hospital for kids... these hospitals provide free care for people who need it... 
"Hey there, My 6 year old daughter and I have been working on a project. We’re collecting pop can tabs... or beer tabs lol... for The Shriners Hospital For Kids. I’ve got a couple collection boxes set up and looking for help. I’ve got one at Ed Subs on Elmwood and one at Rinzler’s Meat Market on Mountain Road... tabs are sold for the weight and 100% of the proceeds go to the hospitals..."

Queen Elizabeth: a great story from her bodyguard about a chance encounter with some American tourists

Scotty note:
When I was a little kid, we got the day off school so we could line up and see the Queen's motorcade as she drove through Moncton. She drove past us on Saint George Street near what was then Aberdeen School (now a cultural centre). The motorcade slowed so that she could wave and say hello to us. That was pretty special.
Aberdeen Cultural Centre circa 2019

Tony sent me this video of Queen Elizabeth's bodyguard telling a terrific story about a chance meeting with some tourists who didn't know they were talking to the Queen...

🐶 RCMP Dogs and their humans are training in the city this week... so it's a bad week to start a crime syndicate... people on our Facebook are saying how cute the dogs are, which might be their strategy: "Stop or my dog will cute!!"
