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.

Warren Olsen on his big package

Via email, the former CAO of Richmond County says he would be “disappointed” if confidential details pertaining to his departure from the municipality were leaked to my goodself.

Media Madness

More Mother Corpse News...

The ratings for CBC Nova Scotia News at Six are trending in the wrong direction. This, as co-hosts Tom Murphy and Amy Smith ready themselves for a trip to Toronto having been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award as best local news anchors.

Jamie Baillie has a dream...

At the recent Conservative Party leadership debate at Halifax’s Westin Hotel, I looked on in disbelief as Opposition Leader Jamie Baillie drifted in and out of deep REM sleep.

Frankland Love Letters of the Week

Dear Frank: I love the way that you tell the truth.
I love the way you open doors that otherwise wouldn’t be opened, and pursue lines of thought that would never see the light of day otherwise. The Nova Scotia media scene is richer for your presence. A few comments about Frank 760:

Whose House: The Judges

It’s funny, nobody’s marching in the streets waving signs around demanding that judges be given a raise.
That’s mostly owing to the fact that Nova Scotia doesn’t have 9,300 Provincial & Family Court judges, like there are members of a certain newly militant public service union.

Wanker of the Week

Wanker Waye Mason & his shovel

There really must be something to this climate change business.
In case you haven’t noticed, Nova Scotia in general — and Halifax in particular — now seems to be averaging a once-in-a-generation  weather event every couple of years.

Plastic bag activist Tony Mancini

Harbourview-Burnside-Dartmouth Councillor Tony Mancini announced the other day that he plans on asking municipal staff to study the possibility of banning the use of plastic bags in Halifax. How nice.

David Keddy’s friends, family doubt drugs motive for killing

Although Garnet Keddy says his brother David might well have been involved in the drug trade, the Annapolis County man admits that he doesn’t know for sure, and that others are likely in a better position to know.

Y guy prosecution in peril?

It’s already a messy situation — Pictou County YMCA CEO Dave MacIntyre has been charged with assaulting his mistress, who is also his employee (Frank 760) — but it’s getting messier by the day.
