John McCracken: Looking back at the last month of our caseloads, and more specifically, our provincial government’s actions, there is a compelling argument to be made that our province’s historic reliance on workers having to earn a living in other parts of the country has now come home to bite us.
Out with the old, and in with the new. John McCracken on the dramatic changes in several Nova Scotia municipalities after the elections.
John McCracken on the PC’s provincial election win in New Brunswick: “You could practically hear the cheering from the corporate head office of Irving Oil at 10 King Square South in Saint John, New Brunswick.”
John McCracken takes a look at the feedback on the federal/provincial announcement that there will be a review rather than a public inquiry on April’s mass shooting. “The good people of Nova Scotia, as it turns out, can smell a cover up from a mile away,” he concludes.
“The largest and one of the deadliest outbreaks of Covid-19 in a long-term care (LTC) facility in Canada is raising serious questions about how Nova Scotia’s government has handled the crisis – and whether ignoring early warnings from frontline workers and their unions had deadly consequences,” writes John McCracken.
“Events of the last few weeks have provided a disturbingly strong case that Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil’s well-worn, anti-union biases prevented him from making the right decisions on fighting the Coronavirus in Nova Scotia’s long-term care (LTC) facilities,” writes John McCracken.
