"From the Discovery Centre to Historic Properties" = "from the cruise ships to the Casino," right? (And that's OK! Just asking is all...)
"The Herald has improved by leaps and bounds since the strike began."
Mark Lever? Is that you?!?
Try The Halifax Examiner. Daily news & opinions, investigative pieces, etc, all by paid journalists and no verbatim press releases allowed. Or check out Local XPress, with daily news / sports / entertainment news from the CH's striking writers. The Coast's Jacob Boon and The Examiner's Tim Bousquet attend municipal council when it sits and their respective Twitter feeds are a great way to keep up with municipal issues. The student papers from Kings and NSCC journalism programs have done good things. FRANK certainly serves a purpose but there are other alternatives for news. They're just not sitting in newspaper boxes on every corner.
