Again from the East Coast...

This week in Morningnewsbeat, my favorite industry newsletter…

Wednesday, July 27…
The CBC reports that in Woodstock, New Brunswick, just five miles from the US-Canadian border, a controversy has broken out over the 85-year-old resident of a trailer park. The park is scheduled to be razed to make way for a Wal-Mart, and a deal was struck that would pay moving and relocation expenses for anyone owning a home and living there as of last December. The 85-year-old woman, however, was not covered because her mobile home is technically owned by her children. Now, the 33 other residents of the trailer park have banded together, refusing to move until the elderly woman is guaranteed reimbursement of her expenses.

reported earlier this week about a controversy enveloping a trailer park in Woodstock, New Brunswick, about five miles from the US-Canada border. The trailer park was scheduled to be razed to make room for a Wal-Mart, with anyone who lived and owned a home there as of last December being reimbursed for moving and relocation expenses. The deal fell apart, though, when an 85-year-old woman didn’t qualify to have her expenses paid because her trailer home was technically owned by her children – at which point the rest of the parks residents said they wouldn’t move unless she were included. Now, however, the development company has agreed to pay the bulk of her expenses, the elderly woman has agreed, the other residents have backed down, and Woodstock will eventually get its Wal-Mart.

Just FYI… this is where Ebola is from… (okay, not the trailer park per se…). Ahh, the East Coast...
