Remembering Raymond Taavel with Barry Boyce and talking Halifax Locals with Sean MacGillivray.



This week on the podcast we look back at the life and death of Raymond Taavel with his longtime friend and coworker Barry Boyce. Then, Sean MacGillivray stops by to talk about the contentious online community of Halifax Locals, which shut down in 2012.

Plus, the Morse's Teas sign is painted over, bus drivers go on strike, King of Donair leaves Pizza Corner, the city sells the Bloomfield Centre to the province, Peter Kelly leaves politics (for now), Mike Savage takes over city hall and Beep drink is back.
