After losing her long-held south-end seat by fewer than 100 votes, former city councillor Sue Uteck is gearing up to challenge incumbent Waye Mason in this October’s municipal election. What’s inspiring her run and what does she think the city should be doing better?

Plus, CBC steps in it by “explaining” that North Preston is some sort of gang-riddled wild west frontier. Many in the African Nova Scotian community are justifiably outraged.

Former Chronicle Herald columnist Marilla Stephenson scanned the want ads and found a $100k+ gig. The qualifications included, ‘Must have at least two ‘Ls’ in your first name.’ Funny how that happens when you get to write the job description yourself. Plus, Halifax has a new, nattily-dressed CAO, making the rest of city staff look like a bunch of off-the-rack schlubs.
