“Most Viewed”

Tom Mulcair’s polls dilemma: Canadians like him, but will they vote for him?   { Tom Mulcair is the leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada, which has the second most seats in Parliament right now. This headline does not have the snarky tone that’s been used in headlines about Justin Trudeau, son of Pierre Trudeau, and leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. Headlines concerning Stephen Harper, Prime Minister and Head of the Conservative Party of Canada may not be snarky enough. [ wink ]  —djo— }

Halifax police searchhome where deck collapsed, inuring 6 {  “Police ‘executed a search warrant’ and searched the small apartment ‘to allow further processing of the scene-‘ before they allowed tennants to return home. 6 people in their twenties were sent to the hospital with injuries when the second storey deck they were on collapsed down onto the first storey deck. The article states that there was no mention of anybody being injured on the deck directly below the one that collapsed. The building made news twelve years ago when neighbours complained that the home’s owner was turning it into an apartment building. That’s when two decks were added. The issue went to court in 2002 and the owner of the building was ordered to pay ‘thousands of dollars’ to the city. * Must have forgotten to pay for a permit first. * & A year ago, on September 15th, a deck collapsed in Dartmouth, across the river from Halifax, and sent people to a hospital back then. —djo— }
