Eddie Cornwallis

Dugger’s death reminds us of a time when our politicos were not all cookie-cutter, skittish, mealy-mouthed marionettes...

Another well-known politico from yesteryear has died and Nova Scotians can again take notice how dull our current political players are.
Gone are the big personalities, the big ideas, the colourful backdrops.

Diary of the Village Blacksmith

Dear Diary, Hello again. I couldn’t decide if I was going to write an entry last week or not. Couldn’t make up my mind. There was so much going on, and by the time I got around to making my mind up, the whole doggone thing had been taken out of my hands.

The new Frank Cameron decides not to sweat the small stuff

In my other life at Seaside FM, I sometimes comment on the state of happenings and sometimes forget that our audience doesn’t tune in to hear some pompous ass like me commenting on piddly stuff that doesn’t matter in the great scheme of things.

Sydney lawyer's Boxing Day brouhaha

It’s easy to see how Sydney lawyer Jim Gogan might’ve thought it a great idea to crash a house party with a few pals after the bar closed for the night on Boxing Day. It’s the holidays, not to mention it’s the weekend. (No reason to go home just yet, boys! — ed.)

Who's got money in Techlink, and how much

Meet the Dalhouse Dental School Class of 2015

It’s been six weeks since the Dalhousie Class of 2015 “Gentlemen” story broke, and still we’ve yet to see the names of the 13 students behind the Facebook group released. (Save for Ryan Millet, of course, who seems to be getting nothing but grief for his troubles.)

Pictou Mountie Darrin disarmed

Jihadis have made themselves perfect for Hollywood

When the Berlin Wall fell, some film buffs asked themselves where Hollywood would find villains now that there were no Commies or Ruskies still standing to be cast in that role. Some suggested that studios might turn to generic Arab/Muslim villains.
