The Tuesday News Dispatches Can Be Found In The Sept 4th Archives

Sep 7, 2018 | Politics

By Andrew Macdonald

If you missed our Tuesday news dispatch, you can find it under my website archives for Sept. 4.

The dispatches last Tuesday included an article on Halifax Port Authority exec Michele Peveril taking a 10-month secondment with the Nova Scotia government.

We also ran a news article on business leader Dean Leland taking an equity stake of 25-30 per cent in Oceanstone, founded by Tim Moore. We relied on sources to tell us Leland’s stake.

We also published a story about Nova Scotia PC leadership contender John Lohr doing a serious financial ask over the Labour Day weekend.

And, there was also a neat story on a weather-related and star gazing smart phone app.

So, if you missed the Tuesday news dispatches, see the archives, which date back to May 5, 2017, and are listed by story topics.

For instance, there are nearly 50 booze stories, nearly 50 stories on Halifax developers, and 268 MacPolitics articles.

If you dine out in the city, check out the nearly 50 restaurant features. If you are into cottage living, there are nearly 20 stories over the last year on Cottage Life.

If podcasts are of interest to you, there are nearly 50 radio style interviews with long-time leading broadcaster, Jordi Morgan, who has produced serious journalism on Maritime business and political operators. Morgan, formerly with CBC and Rogers Radio, is now Atlantic VP of the business lobby group, Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).
