Local snowmobile club receives federal funding

A local snowmobile club is getting federal funding to help purchase new equipment.

Tobique-Mactaquac MP TJ Harvey announced Thursday that the Northern Lights Trailblazers would receive an $80,000 non-repayable contribution.

Harvey says the new equipment will help enhance the maintenance capacity for the province-wide network of snowmobile trails.

The New Brunswick Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is also playing a role in the development of the project, along with other similar ones in Belledune, Edmundston, Petitcodiac and Rexton.
