Re: “A new bike lane might be rolling onto Almon Street

Thanks for that catch, Shannon and electric. Updated the post so people know it'll be live after the engagement session.

Re: “Police accidentally release social media passwords to The Coast

That's why he threw in the presumably. At least, I presume.

Re: “Logan has almost no female characters

Mike, there are three people running this site, one person on comments and it's the weekend. Relax. Eternity will simply have to wait 48 hours for your wit and wisdom.

Re: “Halifax CAO off work dealing with “personal issue”

Generally, I'd recommend distrusting me. Spoiler alert: I'm not actually good at this stuff.

Re: “Police trying to determine who owns interest earned off seized drug cash

It's weird because this does seem to be a common practice in many American cities. I read one news story out of Houston where the audit team for THAT department's evidence room actually recommended the exact oppositethe money wasn't in an interest-bearing account and they said it should be.

At the moment this is one of the few uncompleted recommendations made in last year's Drug Audit, so we'll see what comes out of it.

Re: “Halifax CAO off work dealing with “personal issue”

Actually, no, that's not my experience at all, TMA. People talk about all sorts of things, off-the-record and on, and especially if the matter's insignificant.

Look, I am happy to be wrong about what's going on, and I'll have an update if/when we learn anything else about why the municipality's chief employee has taken a sudden, secret and unapproved leave.

If that makes you distrust me more as a reporter, that's fine. I hope I'll prove you wrong, but skeptical eyes are healthy.
