CBC New Brunswick is hosting a public forum at St. Thomas University's Kinsella Auditorium on May 23

Two "historic" spring floods in a row have many along the St. John River talking about climate change, and bracing for more intense floods, more often in the future.

Join CBC New Brunswick's Terry Seguin and local panelists for a community conversation. We'll explore what New Brunswickers should be doing to adapt to the new climate reality, and whether the public and officials should be doing more already.
