Thank you so much to Tracey Underhill and Mary-Ellen Landry of Fredericton Hyundai for the load of goodies that were delivered via their Stuff a Palisade Campaign. We are incredibly grateful for your generosity and that of everyone who donated to the Campaign.
Like everyone in Fredericton and across the province, the staff and volunteers at Liberty Lane are incredibly saddened by the four deaths that occurred on August 10th. These tragic deaths affect everyone in our city in some capacity. Liberty Lane has a connection to the family of Constable Sara Burns in that her husband, Steven, was one of the two key personalities in "Burns & Jones' Long Long Walk for Liberty Lane" earlier this summer. We at Liberty Lane consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have worked with Steven and our deepest condolences are with him and his family in this time of grief. The staff and volunteers at Liberty Lane extend our sympathies to all of the victims and their families.
This June, Brian Jones and Steven Burns are leading the way down the Trans-Canada Highway from Edmundston to Fredericton in a plan to raise $100,000 for Liberty Lane! Stay tuned for details about being part of the walk, and donating to the event.

There are many generous people in our community; and they've helped us raise $600,000 of our Capital Campaign goal, $900.000!
How can we top last year? On May 8th, you'll hear about an amazing fundraising event to support Liberty Lane's campaign. You really won't believe what people will do to help women and children affected by family violence.
Legal Aid is a service offered to those with low income in need of legal representation. Their services typically fall within criminal and family matters. However, in New Brunswick, many services are not covered by our legal aid system. For family matters, these services include, “variation of any order made under the Divorce Act (including child support); division of marital property; variation of spousal support (New Brunswick Legal Aid Commission, 2012).” This places many women who fall into the low income category who are experience domestic violence unable to file for divorce from a violent partner. If their partner files for divorce while attempting to gain custody of their child, the woman has no representation from legal aid. This often forces women to self represent against their violent partner, risking the custody of their child and a fair agreement of divorce.
If your group, church, book club, office or organization is looking for an important cause, we have a well-supported, short-term initiative that makes a real difference in our community!
