This week, we welcome Darren Fisher, newly-minted Member of Parliament for Dartmouth-Cole Harbour. We talk about the disparity between the economic platforms of the federal and provincial Liberal governments, the difference between serving as a city councillor versus an MP, and his newly-introduced private members bill regarding mercury containment.
Subsequently, Tim tries to cop some dope.
Also this week, Halifax’s newspaper of record
totally shit the bed exercised questionable journalistic judgement in publishing an undersourced story about alleged bullying at a local elementary school. At least these parents and their kids have freedom fighter Ezra Levant in their corner. Lucky, lucky parents.
This episode was somewhat sedate, as our fearless publisher was celebrating a birthday last night. Happy birthday to Halifax’s answer to J. Jonah Jameson.
