Eddie Cornwallis

Will Waye Mason & the wackos come after Sir Winston next?

With wacko Halifax Councillor Waye Mason having lost another round in his battle to rewrite history and have Lieutenant-General Edward Cornwallis, the proud founder of Halifax, expunged from the history books, how long before this diluted little twerp of  a man regroups?

Cape Breton Chit Chat

At the trough with ‘Big’ Dave Wilton

Back in the winter, we told you about backbencher Cape Breton Centre MLA Dave Wilton’s love of nice things and his new found access to public cash after the Liberal was elected in a 2015 byelection.

A Baddeck make-believe wedding to remember

As weddings go it was as beautiful and elegant as it was make-believe.
Hollywood came to Baddeck, Cape Breton, a pocket-sized, insignificant crossroads in quiet repose, resting sometimes comfortably on the northern shore of the Bras d’Or Lake. Population 750ish.

Media Madness

Toronto Star tragedy's Halifax connection

Those with knowledge of the comings and goings in Halifax’s incestuous media community already know the local connection to the seamy and tragic chain of events at  Canada’s largest newspaper.

When Doug Saunders got stung by a bee

Reams of copy have been written in tribute and remembrance of Muhammad Ali since his death last Friday night. Ali was larger than life, superlative in the ring, an even better man outside of it and beyond it. One suspects we’ll never see his like again.

Frank Letters

Birds of a feather...

Dear Frank: Re: The Village Blacksmith Diaries, Frank 743.

Separated at birth?

Dear Frank: It’s a miracle! Like Lazarus and those zombies from that television program everyone likes, a beloved comedian has risen from the dead! Except, why is he rough-housing peaceful protesters now? It seems he was much funnier on his first go-round.

South End Power Couple Meltdown

When love goes south, that cherished dreamhome is sure to go with it.
Case in point: Halifax power couple the talented and fragrant Lisa Gallivan and Dr. Dan Stuart.

Doctors & dentists & lawyers, oh my!

Spring is in the air, furniture is piled beside the road, and there’s a king’s ransom in student rental properties available across the peninsula. Yes, it’s Dalhousie Convocation time again!

Wanker of the Week

Bruckschwanker of the Week

Recent media coverage hailing the Return of Darren Bruckschwaiger to the CBRM municipal political arena leaves out a fact that should not be forgotten.

Law & Disorder

Lyle Howe throws everything against the wall, sees what sticks

If you happened to be on the eighth floor of Cogswell Tower on June 1, and stuck your head in the door of a certain Nova Scotia Barrister’s Society disciplinary hearing at the right time, you would have seen a white man getting a trifle exasperated with a black man.

The unsolved slaying of shopkeeper Michael Leo Resk

Although Al Capone had been dead for more than eight years by the time Halifax grocer Michael Leo Resk was gunned down in 1955, there is every indication the Chicago Outfit co-founder would have approved of the slaying.

Guy Pothier

Who are the one per cent & do they matter?

Talk about the almost legendary one per cent has been a staple of political debate and social commentary since the rise and eclipse of the Occupy movement.

Media echoes & the Justin phenom

Remember the scene in The Bonfire of the Vanities where Sherman McCoy is forced by his wife (on whom he has cheated) to explain to his daughter his job as a bond broker.

Valley missing persons mystery: Where is Mark Clarke?

In his youth, Mark Clarke and a couple of his friends would hang out on the front steps of one of the churches in downtown Canning. It was centrally located: close to the convenience store; to a trail; and to the basketball court at the Glooscap Elementary School.

Pregnant pause for Amy Hood sentencing?

It looks as if my planned summer day trip to Pictou County in July to attend Amy Hood’s sentencing hearing — perhaps with a stop at Melmerby Beach before returning to Halifax — has been stymied by the naughty former schoolteacher’s legalist, Joel Pink.
