It was just a matter of time and opportunity before Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh sexually abused another boy, says Bob Martin, one of his victims from more than 40 years ago. “What upset me was when Dr. Angela Connors got on the stand and said there was less than a 20 per cent chance that Mr. MacIntosh would reoffend,” said Martin, who was sexually abused by MacIntosh in the early 1970s. “We were going, ‘Hell no. He’s serial. He needs this.’ We w...

An urban planning expert says Halifax is at risk of becoming a “banana republic in a cold climate” if it continues clearing snow and ice from roads more thoroughly than sidewalks. Barry Wellar, a University of Ottawa professor emeritus of geography, said maintaining a higher service standard for motorists than pedestrians creates different classes of residents.

As some fourth-year male Dalhousie University dentistry students are returning to clinical practice, one remains out in the cold — Ryan Millet, the self-termed whistleblower. “Ryan believes that there is an underlying attitude amongst some within the Dalhousie community that he is particularly to blame for the resulting adverse publicity and reputational harm that has accompanied Dalhousie’s treatment of this Facebook investigation,” a statemen...

Former Port Hawkesbury businessman Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh has been handed a seven-year jail sentence in Nepal and been fined the equivalent of about $12,650 for molesting a young boy, according to a report on the Hindustan Times website. And while Bob Martin of Port Hood, Inverness County, is happy to hear the news, he said it’s not clear whether MacIntosh will complete his sentence in Nepal.

Many Halifax-area Grade 1 students are still struggling to learn how to read, despite extra literacy supports in schools. The Halifax regional school board released its annual report on literacy in the early years at its monthly meeting on Wednesday night.

SYDNEY — The Cape Breton University student union, faculty association and administration are presenting a united front in a call for the federal government to untie the “Gordian knot” that binds student debt, tuition fees and university funding.

No, the Downtown Halifax Business Commission did not rent a time machine to film its latest video. And, yes, it did try to make the one-minute spot as cringe-worthy as possible. The ad highlights the commission’s Date Night promotion, which encourages residents to spend time and money in the downtown core.

The faces change but the result is the same. The Saint Mary’s Huskies women’s basketball team made it three straight AUS titles on Sunday, defeating the UPEI Panthers 59-51 in the final at Scotiabank Centre. The reigning CIS silver medallists are the first team to win three in a row in the AUS since the Cape Breton Capers won three straight ending in 2011.
