Breaking News: Rash of vehicle break-ins in Westville

Glenn Fraser

After an outpouring of support for a Stellarton man who was seriously assaulted on October 10, fundraisers have begun to spring up to assist him and his family for any future needs.
Glenn Fraser was assaulted outside the Roseland Cabaret in New Glasgow at about 1:45 a.m. on the Friday before Thanksgiving.
As a result, a page on the crowd funding site youcaring.com has been created by close friend Michele Linthorne who, from Holland, wanted to be able to help her friend.

A bank account has also been set up, in trust, for Fraser for those who do not wish to donate electronically. Donations can be made to any Bank of Montreal branch, transit 0182 and account number 3983-567.
A prepared statement from Fraser’s family reads: “His family has been told he will face a long, long road to recovery and at this time the outcome is unknown.”
Fraser remains at the QEII in Halifax on a ventilator and in an induced coma with life threatening head injuries such as a fractured skull, two bleeds within his brain, as well as multiple facial fractures.

Fraser was known as a very quiet person, who rarely went out to bars or similar activities, due to certain anxieties.
“Just two weeks ago he said ‘I’m starting to feel a little more sociable’ and we were really happy,” said Fraser’s family member.
His family is grateful for the continuing...
