Signs that a controversial moose cull in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park is having the desired effect. A 4th annual cull began this week on a section of North Mountain. The cull is part of the ‘Bring Back the Boreal’ pilot project, using techniques for restoring the park’s forest to its natural state.

Premier Stephen McNeil says he’s hoping fishermen end a blockade of survey boats hired to examine a route for an undersea pipeline. McNeil says he will advise fishermen to let the seismic research in the Northumberland Strait take place because it’s a lawful activity. However, he also says it’s up to the Northern Pulp mill to decide whether to call in the RCMP to end the blockade.

The provincial government is launching a new pilot program designed to address one of the biggest criticisms of its pre-primary program. The issue being that working parents find it hard because it only operates during school hours. Over 3000 children are enrolled in pre-primary programs across the province. The pilot will run from January to June.
