Rape & Pillage Withdrawal, Canadian-style

The caliphate is disintegrating as the psychopaths scramble to fly back to their various homelands. Ralph Goodale can hardly wait to hug them at the airport. You should know that Ralph Goodale, 68, is your minister of public safety and emergency preparedness.

Lynching Lenehan: Halifax's mob mentality

Lynching Lenehan: Halifax's mob mentality

It’s possible former Halifax cab driver Bassam Al-Rawi is a sexual predator of the top order.

Cape Breton Chit Chat

Oh, the humanity!

Donald James Campbell, the accused drug trafficker who was being hailed as a hero by dozens of cheering Cape Bretoners outside Sydney court the other week, has a criminal record as long as my arm.

Ryan Roz’s big, er, victory

Despite Ryan Rozicki’s passionate words in the lead-up to his November 25 fight at Centre 200, the man who calls himself the Cape Breton Thunder hardly needed a meteorological miracle to dispatch his opponent on that night.

Media Madness

The world according to Clinton Wilkins

It’s difficult to say why Clinton Wilkins feels the need to publish a book of his own, since his adventures have been so welldocumented in my organ.

Have a holly, jolly Stephen McNeil Xmas!

’Twas the nite before Christmas
Santa sat on the end of the sofa
While on the TV Preem Steve gave a
“Holiday” address to the people
of Nova Scotia
The premier was a man in good cheer
As glowing platitudes dripped from his lips

Frank Fan of the Week

As angry messages on the Frankland voicemail machine go, it was pretty typical. He was sputtering mad. Cursed a lot. Didn’t leave his name. He didn’t make any particular threats, but he did suggest trouble was coming.

No, I won’t shut up and quit...

Dear Frank: Earlier today, I saw the tweeted position of Frank Magazine in regard to Gregg Zaun’s firing, and apparently, also in regard to any woman who speaks up about previously permitted “inappropriate behaviour” toward them in any workplace.

Councillor Wilkins is back in the building...

Annapolis Councillor Marilyn Wilkins is back on the job. Concerned citizens had been wondering why Marilyn was missing quite a few municipal meetings and events — about 12 over the last year, according to records. She even missing from council’s group photo on the county website (Frank 778).

Wanker of the Week

So, is the mill going to demand we don’t call them Wanker?

The folks running the pulp mill that makes Pictou Harbour smell like apples and cinnamon Satan’s underpants after colon surgery appear to be a pretty thinskinned bunch.

Stephen McNeil, the Great Communicator

Standing in front of reporters on Cabinet Day on Thursday, September 23, the Village Blacksmith, er, sorry, Premier Stephen McNeil, explained to one and all his understanding of N.S. Auditor General Michael Pickup’s role within the Government of Nova Scotia.

Law & Disorder

A man & a woman with troubled lives... and their troubling deaths

Many larger cities have “murder tours,” where some entrepreneur shuffles a group of people around showing places where murders have occurred, or where people were last seen prior to disappearing into the ether.

Liverpool's pervy pot biz manager

A tip of the Frankland cap to Jeffrey Garnhum for landing on his feet after being drummed out of the provincial civil service in 2010 for the crime of showering female underlings with unwanted sexual advances (Their memories of the events are much different than mine, but if anyone was offended,
