I see where a new cast of characters is set to take to their marks at Cape Breton’s longest running comedy show, The Cape Breton Regional Municipal Council Gong Show.
Seven years ago, she was teaching English in Milan, Italy, one of the cultural and high fashion capitals of the world. Population: 1.5 million.
Then she came home. Home to Main-a-Dieu, Cape Breton. Population: 230. She traded Milan Fashion Week for the May Main-a-Dieu Blessing of the Lobster Fleet.
Records accessed at the Sydney Justice Centre indicate that suspended Cape Breton Regional Police Constable Wade Lavin managed to involve himself in two separate criminal investigations within 48 hours of each other back in July.
It all boils down to a set of golf clubs, really. Not the golf clubs themselves, but who they belong to, where they were found, and what they represent in the public’s mind.
Oh, heavens, in my haste to lay the much coveted Frankland hand of forgiveness on the balding scalp of former Glace Bay MLA Dave Wilson as he makes a bid for a seat on Cape Breton Municipal Council, I neglected to mention that there’s a third candidate running in District 10.
The candidate not named Dave Wilson or Darren Bruckschwaiger is named Brian Shaw.
