    Excellent news! Hopefully we can have some consolidation of municipal staff and some comprehensive infrastructure planning, such as sidewalks along Westville Rd to the Wellness Centre. It would also be nice to see the 2 towns work with the county on building an active transportation trail from Brown's Point to Abercrombie to connect Caribou, Pictou & Lyons Brook with Abercrombie & New Glasgow for bikers and joggers, etc.

    Memo of understanding - about what? Looking at the state of the town of New Glasgow, I hope they have a very minimal role in any sort of amalgamation. I certainly don't want this overall area to be named or run by the town of new glasgow! Status Quo forever, before those incompetent seeming people are put in charge!
