People in Port Hawkesbury I’m speaking to are wondering if their local RCMP detachment is aware of who they’re supposed to be serving and protecting.
The optics of arresting a former RCMP officer outside his house after a two-hour, armed standoff and returning him home that very night are simply too much for some.
A series of unfortunate events, or a campaign of internal terror, intimidation and creative uses of a cribbage board among Indian Brook band councillors? You be the judge, at least until it all eventually goes before an actual judge.
Even considering the low journalistic standards displayed by Transcontinental-owned fishwrappers across Nova Scotia on a daily basis, I find myself marvelling over how substandard the New Glasgow News’s coverage of recent happenings at the Pictou County YMCA was.
“There’s no story here,” the man on the other end of the line is saying to me.
“I had a bad day.”
Residents of Port Hawkesbury’s Tamarac subdivision would certainly agree with the latter statement. Not so much with the former.
More proof that a party who serves as his own lawyer in court has a fool for a client.
