(NB-Storm-Review)

A review of the response to last January's deadly ice storm in northeastern New Brunswick contains 51 recommendations -- including ways to strengthen future responses to natural disasters.

Two people died and 30 people were hospitalized due to carbon monoxide poisoning after the storm downed power lines and left 300-thousand people without electricity at the peak of the outage -- with some service out for 11 days.

The review calls for increased provincial funding to help add emergency resources at the regional level -- possibly though an increase to the N-B 9-1-1 fee on phone bills -- and programs to encourage the purchase of carbon monoxide detectors.

The report author says everyone responding to the catastrophic storm did the best they could with the resources available and the review aims to ensure a better response next time.

Ten endangered whales have died in the Gulf of St. Lawrence since early June -- at least some after colliding with ships.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau imposed a speed limit last Friday in an area of the gulf.

Oceanex says its vessels now need to travel more quickly outside the speed-restricted zone to make up time.

But the P-E-I Fishermen's Association says it doesn't buy that explanation for the roughly two-dollar-a-pound drop in prices since last year.

The association adds it will continue to pursue fair and equitable prices and hopes the price will increase over the 2017 season. …
