Hearing set for Big Cove man

MIRAMICHI - Gordon Michael Augustine, 27, of Big Cove must appear in provincial court for a preliminary hearing on firearms charges on Oct. 27.

The RCMP charged Mr. Augustine following an incident on the morning of Sept. 22 when a bullet fired from one fishing boat struck the cabin of another fishing boat.

The incident happened on the day that Fisheries and Oceans Minister Herb Dhaliwal ordered all lobster traps out of Miramichi Bay - an order which Burnt Church First Nation argues Mr. Dhaliwal has no right to give.
