CCNB, UMoncton Shippagan close Bathurst site due to possible asbestos presence


The building that hosts Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick’s Bathurst campus and the UniversitĂ© de Moncton Shippagan’s Bathurst site was evacuated this week after a material suspected to be asbestos was found. CCNB reported that a dust was found in one of the main rooms on campus, which workers subsequently suspected could be asbestos. CCNB and UMoncton subsequently closed their Bathurst sites as a precautionary measure until further notice. CCNB President Pierre Zundel stated that an external firm is currently carrying out an air quality assessment to determine if asbestos was in fact emitted; the results of which should be available this week.
