Good idea except sometimes you have to wait hours to use one of their computers.

Or just accept that $16 is a fantasticly good rate to pay for the newspaper each month, having someone deliver it in all weathers so you don't even need to collect it and then pay the extra 90c for the apparently improved website.

I suppose it depends what you want from your news.

There's plenty for national and world news but not much for Moncton. There's News 91.9 which is a sort of "in brief" and there's CBC NB which gives a bit.

Otherwise, there's TV and then a couple of sites where the "news" will be of the sort that Useta disseminates.

The T&T is at least informative as far as Moncton goes. It's just like the local (evening) paper back in Bristol. Not the best, but essential.

You mean for the paper delivery and the cheaper site access? Fair point. I still like to check what's going on back in the UK so I can imagine there may be people living elsewhere who might do the same with Moncton.

But in a similar situation, I'd get family or friend to do the necessary and share an account  :)

Here's what you do. Give the T&T to somebody in Moncton as a Birthday gift and keep the T&T online for yourself.
