CAM – TIDE HEAD LAND PURCHASE
At the most recent Planning Review and Adjustment Committee of the

According to the Tribune the land in Ridgewood Acres Subdivision is zoned as
parks and recreation, but someone has approached the village to buy the land.
Several area residents wrote letters of opposition to the sale saying the
land should stay designated green space for the community.
In the past the land has been used as dumping ground for organics, asphalt,
and other construction materials. That has since been stopped.
The matter has been tabled until more information is available on the
intended use of the land.
NB/CAM – GIFTING SCAM
The Saint Quentin RCMP are warning the public after people in Northern New
Brunswick have been approached about a gifting cloud or gifting circle scam.
In the scheme people are invited to invest or pay a “gift” of money to join
with the promise of a significant financial pay-off at the end.
They are then asked to recruit new ‘investors’ to contribute.
The RCMP say a “gifting cloud” or “gifting circle” is a pyramid scheme, it
is a fraud and it is illegal.
If you have been approached or targeted to take part in the scam you are
advised to contact your local police department.
