Centre Street lion installed in new home in Rotary Park

Lion statue

One of the four stone lions that once sat on the Centre Street Bridge over 100 years ago has now been installed in its new home. The statue has been erected on a bluff in Rotary Park, overlooking the same bridge where it sat for the better part of a century. All four of the iconic sculptures were removed from the bridge in 1999 after inspectors discovered that they were beginning to show their age and deteriorate because of weather and the constant vibration of the bridge. The lions wereRead More


Ontario made the right call in voting out Liberals, interim leader says

John Fraser

The interim leader of Ontario’s struggling Liberal party says voters made the “right call” in stripping them of power — and official party status — in the last provincial election. John Fraser, who was one of only seven Liberals to win a seat in June’s vote, told the Ontario Liberal Provincial Council that voters put his party in the “penalty box,” but the time has come to rebuild. Fraser says the party lost sight of its message, leading in part to the devastating loss in the election. He says membersRead More

Halifax staff recommend against renaming street after Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby

HALIFAX — City staff in Halifax are advising against renaming a road after Sidney Crosby, noting that Nova Scotia’s hockey darling doesn’t meet the existing criteria for commemorative naming because he has not yet retired. A staff report up for discussion by council on Tuesday explores the implications of renaming Dartmouth’s Forest Hills Parkway to Sidney Crosby Parkway. The report says that while staff acknowledge “the broad range of positive impacts that Sidney Crosby’s athletic achievements have on the local community,” renaming the street for him would conflict with municipalRead More

Earthquake-spawned tsunami leaves path of death in Indonesia

Margie Mason, The Associated Press Published Saturday, September 29, 2018 9:20AM EDT JAKARTA, Indonesia — The sun had just slipped behind the mountains, leaving a soft pink glow as the blue sea melted into the darkening horizon. It could have been a postcard from a tropical paradise, except for the long white wave stretching the width of the bay — getting larger and closer with each passing second. By the time the fast-moving wall of frothing water slammed into the city of Palu off Indonesia’s Sulawesi island on Friday, itRead More


France’s best-kept secret in North America

France's best-kept secret in North America

Fortune, Newfoundland (population 1,458) is a sleepy maritime town on the southeastern boundary of the bay that shares its name. The former fishing hub is the site of an unlikely border crossing – into Europe. Just 30 km across Fortune Bay sits a little-known bit of France in North America: The 6,000 person archipelago Saint-Pierre et Miquelon. A 90-minute ferry ride takes tourists to France, complete with EU passports, Euros and bakeries. Like its Canadian neighbour Fortune, the islands have a long history as a thriving fishing community.
