Eddie Cornwallis

A case for collusion: Who's fuelling Tarrah's anti-Frank feud?

I am again called upon to come to the defence of the small band of brothers (and sister! — ed.) who constitute Frankland World Omni Corp.
That said: This Souvenir Extended Eddie Cornwallis Column is brought to you by the letter ‘C’ and the word, Collusion.

Ticket munchkins & vinyl revival

G4S Security Solutions is an international company based in Florida and partly owned by British and German companies. They’re the ones (Shouldn’t that be “Their the ones...”? — millennial ed.) who employ the little gremlins munchkins who are ticketing your car with reckless abandon in HRM.

Is the ombudsman closing in on CBC Nova Scotia's culture of victimhood?

Is the ombudsman closing in on CBC Nova Scotia's culture of victimhood?

The battle of John Buchanan's life

The battle of John Buchanan's life

John Buchanan has prostate cancer and it has metastized to the bone to his right leg. But the former premier is upbeat. Upbeat but realistic.

Cape Breton Chit Chat

The Joe Menchefski (dead) beat goes on....

I hear that Joe Menchefski’s six-year romantic relationship with Sydney realtor Alexis Rudderham ended in much the same fashion as his business relationsips tend to: rather messy, and mostly his fault.

From the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree files...

A sentencing date of October 30 has been set aside for a former Sydney car salesman, who in March pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of child pornography.
Gregory Allen Walsh, 63, originally faced an additional count of child luring, which was later dropped.

Media Madness

Scabs unlimited

The prize for Line of the Week goes to well-known children’s advocate and current scab for the Chronicle Herald, Jim Vibert, 117, who, in his scabby scribblings, had this to say about our little booklet:
“Frank Magazine is to reading what rat poison is to dining.”

This will not end well...

“If it ain’t broke, let’s break it!”
That would appear to be the motto of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as they usher in this “new era of The National.”
It’s in three different locations. Sorry Halifax. And four different voices. Sorry Tom Murphy.

Frank Letters

Scab alert

Dear Frank: That Jamie Lee Curtis lookalike from the Garden Party highlighted on the Frank 771 letters page is wearing a fine bonnet, most definitely. She’s also a scab.

Lotta heat in that Amedeo’s kitchen

Dear Frank: Was wondering why Amedeo’s has been closed lately. Hope chef Craig MacDonald is able to make a full recovery.
Surprised your story didn’t mention that the restaurant’s founder was the victim in another violent attack a few years back.

Chester wants to know, why did Andre go?

Andre Veinotte tells me he resigned from Chester Council late last month for personal reasons, but he’s adament those reasons are not because of a rumoured affair between himself and an employee of the municipality.

My long lost friend Russ Kelly

B.C. businessman Jim Pattison made headlines earlier this year when he anted up $75 million to assist in the construction of a new Vancouver hospital. Some two months later, he forked over another $50 million to the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

Wanker of the Week: Desiree Vassallo’s Cone of Silence

What would happen if fire fighters only fought fires when they felt like it? Or if, when it came time to perform an emergency appendectomy, the surgeon on call chose to remain in bed snuggled up to her hubby?

AGNS and its Leibovitz Archive...

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia exhibiting a truckload of prints from a celebrity-obsessed American fashion photographer makes about as much sense as giving a chimpanzee a box of Kotex.

McPherson & Van Horne LLP's disclosure oopsy

Although my organ has previously noted that Ryan Van Horne's figurative fingerprints are all over Tarrah McPherson's private prosecution of Frank Magazine, it's really hard to believe the pair was daft enough to present evidence of their close relationship to my goodself during a recent appearanc
