Poetry readings at council could stop in Fredericto­n


Fredericto­n city council may end the custom of opening public meetings with a poem, after its poet laureate read Those Who Need to Hear This Won’t Listen, about abortion. Some councillor­s said the poem was timely given the expected closure of one of the province’s few abortion providers, but one said the custom had become a form of activism.
