N.B. First Nations dealing with provincial fire bans

The entire province is currently under a no-burn order, to be updated Wednesday, and since April 18, there have been full bans for 37 days, and restricted hours for 34 days.

The province has no exemptions for religious or ceremonial fires, leaving to question ceremonies such as sweat lodges and sacred fires. Full story here.
