Eddie Cornwallis

Bleeding from that cutting edge

As you know, I’ll never fully get my head around the fascination you Canadians have with this game called ice hockey.

Cape Breton Chit Chat

Playwright Ryan checks into the Butterscotch Palace

Ryan Van Horne doesn’t care much for stereotypes. He likes to smash them. Eviscerate them actually, absolutely disembowel them. One paragraph, one sentence, one word at a time.

At the trough with ‘Big’ Dave Wilton

Back in the winter, we told you about backbencher Cape Breton Centre MLA Dave Wilton’s love of nice things and his new found access to public cash after the Liberal was elected in a 2015 byelection.

Fat Apollo’s monstrous mascot deal

It’s not like Halifax’s geek mascot Fat Apollo would agree to endorse just any sex toy. For the fellow who traipses around town draped in a Battlestar Gallactica bedsheet, you best believe any titilating device uttered in the same breath as his name has to be naughty, yes; but also nerdy.

Frank Letters

Talking about detox...

Dear Frank: I hadn’t planned on writing to Frank, but I thought I would at least try to raise some sort of public awareness about mental health and addictions in this province.

Old school family ties

Dear Frank: I’m surprised you missed the fact that Charlotte Hoegg Crosbie, the granddaughter of Mulroney-era Newfie cabinet minister John Crosbie, was a member of Dalhousie Med School Class of 2016. As if the lady needed another wall-hanging.

The 46th Information Morning Birthday Party was held on June 24. Milady and I got up earlier than normal on a work day and drove in from Timberlea to the Halifax Forum, arriving shortly before 7 a.m.

A new player in the development wars

If you’ve ever seen one of the fictional, frustrating, and fruitless town hall meetings depicted hilariously on the show Parks and Recreation, then you’ve essentially seen what happens at a Halifax development consultation meeting.

Wanker of the Week

WINNER of the Week, Lorelei Burgess

While Wanker of the Week is generally more my style, every once in awhile an individual emerges who forces my organ to set aside the nastiness, the negativity, and embrace an individual who represents everything that is good and just in the world.
Step forward, Lorelei Burgess.

Recent media coverage hailing the Return of Darren Bruckschwaiger to the CBRM municipal political arena leaves out a fact that should not be forgotten.

Everything’s up to date in, erm, Halifax City...

Oklahoma is often regarded as the first classic Broadway musical on a more or less contemporary theme. Written in 1943, it was actually set in 1912, a few years after Oklahoma became the 46th state.
