VIBERT: A thin response on clearcutting
The Nova Scotia government tried to get on the right side — politically — of forest clearcutting this week and had some initial success with minimal effort. This is the government that, in its first term, backed away from the ...
NICHOLAS MERCER: George Sheppard's giving a good fit for Corner Brook Winter Carnival patron
George Sheppard has developed bone spur in one of his heels. It can be painful at times and cause him discomfort when he moves. It has impeded Sheppard’s daily movements to a crawl but isn’t enough to really slow him down. The ...

NICHOLAS MERCER: Jules Ohelo returns to Africa for the first time in 20 years
For a moment, Jules Ohelo thought he was staring at himself. Albeit, it was a younger version of the man who fled the Congo with his family in the mid-1990s and ended up in Deer Lake in 1999. While helping out at a refugee camp in ...
John Brown: I’ve got the courthouse blues
Look, it is bad enough that the minister of justice shut down the historic Harbour Grace Courthouse after 150 years of work. It’s bad enough that the new digs are a lease and a grossly expensive one at that at $350,000 per annum. With that cash ...
