NS donating to NB flood relief

The provincial government is making a $100,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross to help with flood relief efforts in New Brunswick.

Floodwaters have swept through communities all along the Saint John River, causing a lot of damage to homes and properties, forcing a number of evacuations.

The Canadian Red Cross has worked with civil and provincial authorities to help people impacted by the record flooding, such as registering evacuees, arranging emergency lodging and food where required and in some cases providing financial assistance.
