Millpond calm, slight overcast, temp 16C. Forecasting a possibility of showers for today, but great weather for the gathering.
Police presence gone from the picture as of yesterday. I am sure a few extra bodies around, but not obvious. A good thing for all concerned. Spoke with a person close to the action that night, no intent to take such drastic action. The opposing groups gathered and from calling one another out it escalated to the end result. A mob mentality prevailed, now time to move forward, get the young men incarcerated back into the community and as a community work on the drug problem. All obvious factors, now to get it to work will be the challenge.
Rob getting the van loaded to insure we are at the boat in plenty of time. The mainland awaits, and a visit to WEST 49 to check out the skateboarding regalia, prior to moving onto Fredericton.
