While we’re on the topic of CBC Nova Scotia, and by way of follow-up to those ghastly ratings for their supperhour news package, the current name of which escapes me, we hear there’s quiet rumblings about a move in a different direction.
On Thursday night, 19 hours before Frankland Deadline, we’re getting down to the short strokes, when managing editor Andrew Douglas hit me with this one:
“We’re working on Saturday.”
Interesting concept, I thought to myself, but hardly a capital suggestion. Does this meet the smell test?
It was mere seconds into what promised to be an evening of deep and penetrating discussion about the state of journalism in Atlantic Canada when Jesse Brown brings up the cabbie court case that everyone is talking about.
Sitting at my desk in the Frank bunker on a recent afternoon, I picked up a sudden movement in my peripheral vision.
I’ve always known my old pal Frank Cameron wasn’t a one trick pony. Although to be honest I was beginning to second guess myself. That’s what reading column after column about the plight of Nova Scotia’s teaching fraternity coupled with the evils and abominations of Premier Stephen McNeil can do to a person.
