If you are looking for a place to get your plants, seeds, decor, and so much more, head over to MacArthur’s Nurseries over on MacLaughlin Drive.

Students Protest To Fight For Climate Change
As I’m sure you must have heard, students from all over the world protested the lack of change happening in regards to climate change. Even in Moncton, students participated by standing outside city hall for 2 hours with signs and banners. This all started with one young girl named Greta Thunberg who has been protesting in front of Swedish parliament every Friday since March of last year.
