Today on the Tantramar Report:

The Explore NB tax rebate from last summer is reappearing this year, and will include all Atlantic provinces. We hear from Carol Alderdice, president and CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick and Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace about the expanded program.

Sackville’s Town Hall is the site of an ongoing memorial for the recently discovered mass grave of 215 Indigenous children in British Columbia. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to bring children’s shoes as part of the memorial, or any other token of respect.

Horizon Health reminds New Brunswickers to cancel any appointment if they are no longer attending to prevent long wait times.

The New Brunswick Environmental Network is launching proposed legislation that would see the right to a healthy environment enshrined in New Brunswick law.

The Owens Art Gallery Director Emily Falvey tells us what to expect when visiting the gallery, which reopened yesterday.
