We are presently travelling Atlantic Canada and stopped off in Fredericton, New Brunwick for a few days. The lighthouse was okay and the town itself is cute and has some trendy cafes and restaurants. But the people (aside from tourists) are a bunch of cold fish. The fish are warmer; They walk around with no expressions on their faces and hardly ever smile or laugh. Some of them looked at us like we just landed from Mars. We went to the library there to use the computers and found a lot of disturbed people in the computer lab and the place is manned by a hefty looking security guard at all times. It was very uncomfortable. The impression we got is that something terribly tragic happened in that town and people look so sour about it. The people lend a very depressing aura to the place and we were happy to leave. If ur travelling in Atlantic Canada do avoid Fredericton unless u desperately need gas or some food and coffee.
