Danny Cavanagh, president of the NS Federation of Labour, reflects on workers’ safety on the anniversary of the New Waterford mine disaster,101 years ago. “It’s time to ensure that laws like the Westray Bill are actually enforced, and to enact policies and legislation that are more than “feel-good” laws that remain nothing more than good talking points for politicians.”

This weekend we feature a short gritty film by Grassfire Films, Cape Breton-based filmmaker Ashley McKenzie and producer Nelson MacDonald. The film was shot in 2013 in New Waterford.
