Great Canadian Memory Loss

The first snowfall of the season in Greater Moncton has reminded us that we often suffer from what is called the “Great Canadian Memory Loss”.

It was slow going in the city today as drivers grappled with heavy snow and slick roadways.

As with most first snowfalls, motorists forgot how to drive in the white stuff.

RCMP reported numerous fender benders in Southeast New Brunswick, although none were serious.
