“Peter Kelly’s face was on the cover of The Coast and the next thing you know he’s giving up being mayor,” comments a voter in the Best of survey, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. On February 16, our expose detailed Kelly’s problematic role as executor of the estate of a family friend, including how he had removed over $160,000 from the deceased’s personal bank account, transferring the money to himself and his son. Kelly went into hiding for a week, then announced he would not be running for re-election. What will be next year’s Best Thing to Happen in Halifax in the Past Year? We don’t know, but this town never ceases to surprise.
