The Department of Natural Resources has delayed the fishing season and the spring bear hunt in New Brunswick. which were supposed to start over the next two weeks.

Premier Blaine Higgs says this decision will be re-evaluated at the end of this month.

Higgs says if New Brunswickers stay the course and continue to follow the guidelines under the pandemic, we will make a difference.

Public gatherings of any kind are prohibited this long weekend in New Brunswick under the current state of emergency.

Higgs was concerned about a couple of planned ATV rallies.
