This week we speak to former CBC radio reporter and now Halifax Examiner freelancer Jennifer Henderson about the ongoing shortage of nursing home beds in Nova Scotia. While recently-enacted policy changes have resulted in a shorter wait list, the new rules are generating some controversy.
Plus, looking for a plum public sector gig? Your odds of landing one just increased exponentially assuming you’re sleeping with a Nova Scotia
mover and shaker Doer and Dreamer. No? Then the line to apply for the call centre gig starts over there, pal.
Also, we’re excited to announce the first ever live taping of Examineradio! On Thursday April 7 from 5:30-7:00pm we welcome Mayor Mike Savage to the stage of the Company House for an interview with Halifax Examiner publisher Tim Bousquet. Tickets are $10 and the whole shindig is a fundraiser for community radio station CKDU-FM.

Where/How do we purchase tickets for the live taping? The event isn’t listed onto the Company House website yet (although the event afterwords, the “An Evening of mellow jazz and celtic music featuring Standard Time Jazz Trio and Rissesco and Sampson. An ALS Society of NS & NB fundraiser.” is).
Details soon. Probably tomorrow, if I have the time today.
find it odd that Tim would hire a recently retired CBC person instead of a recently graduated journalist
To be fair, we have worked with new graduates in the past, including Rachel Ward, Hilary Beaumont and John Last.
