Mural “wars” between Sussex and Moncton

Moncton says has surpassed Sussex when it comes to murals.

Moncton officials say they now have 31 murals, four more than Sussex; and they say that the claim made by Sussex as the mural capital of Atlantic Canada no longer applies.

However, Sussex CAO Scott Hatcher says they own the title and plan to hold on to it.

Hatcher added that Sussex has a certificate of registration confirming its trademark and copyright as the Mural Capital of Atlantic Canada.
