It was a rather rowdy Sunday over at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre in Truro and sports complex on December 4, and we’re not talking about the action on the ice. Behind the unassuming glass doors of a meeting room, off to the side of the rink, gathered the members and supporters of Volleyball Nova Scotia for the annual AGM and airing of grievances.
Again we pull back the curtain on the omnipotent Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union, Liette Doucet, prop., and their pitched battle to get a “fair wage” settlement from Stephen McNeil’s Liberal Government.

It didn’t make any local headlines, but I hear the funeral for RCMP Inspector Tony Perry in Antigonish on October 29 was a particularly somber event.
