A sad but true fact…

Frank McKenna’s “New Brunswick Miracle” was predicated on the fact, and now it’s confirmed. My home province is Arkansas North.

  1. Those are just the echos of the banjos in Minto, Chipman, Zealand and Burtts Corner, Dan. Gagetown is positively cosmopolitan by comparison.

    I have to say, as a current resident of “Arkansas North” a.k.a. the Irving Banana Republic; I am not surprised at the redneck sentimentality of the objecting parents, or the cowardice of the capitulating school officials.


  2. Ah yes, Minto – the Appalachia of the Atlantic. I’ll grant you that Gagetown is cosmpolitan by comparison, but then again if we’re using Minto as a baseline, that bar’s set pretty low. As you say, no big surprise, I guess we know where the 2nd generation of the Confederation of Regions party’s going to come from.


  3. Kev, you can’t say I never warned you. I could say that as a fellow NBer I share your shame but the only emotion that I can dredge up for these hillbillies is disdain. I love the province itself but with roughly 60% of the population happily functionally illiterate and way too many people proudly uninterested in anything outside their worldview it really is Canada’s Ozarks.
