The northeastern New Brunswick community of Tabusintac is still grieving the loss of three fishermen after their boat ran aground on a sandbar in May. Fishermen had been complaining about the narrow channel in the area and had urged Fisheries and Oceans Canada to dredge the area. Ian Benoit, Samuel-René Boutin, 23, of Saumarez, and Alfred Rousselle, 32, of Brantville, were all killed when their boat capsized after it became stuck in a narrow trench that allowed boats to pass through a sandbar.
