Hillsborough welcomes artisans and tourists to the village with the addition of six colourful buildings next to the Visitors Information Centre. Each building holds treasures from different vendors.
This is a truly local project with the buildings being constructed by Caledonia Regional High students….great job! Materials have been sourced locally where possible, as well as the onsite work of installing and painting.
The People's Alliance held a town hall in Hillsborough on June 9th, 2016. Despite the wet weather over forty people were in attendance. Party Leader Kris Austin spoke on a wide range of issues.
Kris Austin began by outlining the party's history and efforts to promote itself. After asking for a show of hands of who had heard of the People's Alliance before hearing about the town hall nearly every hand went up. Kris compared this to earlier years when two hands might go up.
Moving on to issues of policy Kris bemoaned the poor state of democracy in New Brunswick. "We need to get back to representing the people first and the party second", he said.
