When a 25-year-old man turned-up in hospital with a gunshot wound 20 minutes later, the matter became even more serious.

Full-time delay for N.B. high school students should be permanent: NBTA

Card image cap

A delay in returning New Brunswick high school students to full-time in-person learning should lead to the plan being scrapped altogether, according to the New Brunswick Teachers' Association.
The full-time return was supposed to happen Monday, replacing the one-day-on, one-day-off system that students had been under. The plan was postponed on Saturday with rising numbers of COVID-19 variants in the province.
The provincial government said it would revisit the decision during the week of April 26, adding its conclusion would be based on advice from Public Health.
"Changing the system again in May is just going to be a huge strain on everyone in the system when you have the end of the year right on the horizon," NBTA president Rick Cuming said on Monday.

Cyber crime becoming more prevalent during pandemic, experts warn

Card image cap

With more people working from home throughout the pandemic, cyber crime is on the rise.
Cyber criminals are constantly finding more advanced ways to attack Canada's most vulnerable, says the CEO of a company offering to help train people in order to prevent some of those cyber attacks.
"Business has never been better for criminals," said David Shipley, the CEO of Beauceron Security.
Shipley is a cybersecurity expert who says small- to mid-sized businesses have been cyber criminals’ main target during the pandemic because they are the most vulnerable.
"Those that are still open, governments, hospitals, higher education, K-12 schools, have been bearing the brunt of that activity, as criminals continue to try and make the money they made before the pandemic," Shipley says.

The New Brunswick chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association says they’re working on more research to see how the pandemic is affecting Atlantic Canadian’s mental health.
Executive director Christa Baldwin says data was collected in the spring and fall of 2020, which showed stress, anxiety and suicidal thoughts were on the rise.
"When we talk about that, that means someone is thinking about suicide or thoughts of self-harm. It’s not necessarily attempting suicide," she said. "So, that has increased from prior to the pandemic, from two per cent, to six per cent in the spring, and 10 per cent in the fall."
