ACORN organizers Storm Paradise and Jonathen Brigley

This week we speak with Jonathen Brigley of Nova Scotia ACORN about that organization’s push for mandatory landlord licensing in Halifax.

Also, Peter Kelly’s cross-Canada tour of fiscal malfeasance continues. After improper loans to concert promoters and the mismanagement of a dead woman’s estate here in Halifax, he’s now accused of overstepping his authority money-wise in the Alberta town of Westlock. His journey has now landed him in Charlottetown, where he plans a Kid Rock concert on the town’s monorail.

  1. This Peter Kelly stuff boils down to likability. Apparently he’s so good at selling himself the world’s his oyster! Charlottetown should google this opportunist

  2. Very interesting comments from Charlottetown deputy – mayor. His idea of “due diligence” can’t be too widely shared can it? The town of Westlock seems to be considering its options, so “to be continued” might be one way to assess this situation with Mr. Kelly’s alleged mis-steps.

    The job descriptions for CAO’s across the country are likely cookie-cutter, and it is reasonable to assume that there would be standards of behavior, ethics and propriety that would be expected. There’d also be options for an aggrieved party/municipality to pursue should there be any failure to meet such standards.
    Maybe Charlottetown has it “made in the shade” on this one; maybe not.

    Great story to pick up on; bravo Bousquet!
