The government structure doesn’t meet the needs of the day, said the motion, presented by Coun. Paul Morton. It added that the town is looking for “a more ...

Rain, melting snow and ice jams forced waters in parts of Eastern Canada to rise Wednesday, submerging roads, filling basements and prompting hundreds to be evacuated from their homes as officials told people to prepare in case they had to seek higher ground. From Atlantic Canada to Ontario, rivers overflowed and in some cases, water levels rose to heights some said they hadn’t seen in years. Many roads were flooded and in New Brunswick, the RCM...

An orthopedic surgeon and his tech-savvy team think your smartphone could slash wait times for knee and hip replacements, two surgeries patients can wait painfully long years to receive.

Halifax’s auditor general is questioning the municipality’s patchwork of sick leave policies, saying taxpayers are not getting value for money. In a report presented to the city’s audit and finance committee Wednesday, Larry Munroe said sick days are costing the city more than $9 million a year. That figure is expected to grow, he said, as unionized workers take an increasing number of sick days. Over a four-year period, Munroe found that sick l...

GREENWOOD — The family of a Nova Scotia woman seriously injured in a skydiving accident in the United States is trying to get her flown back to Canada.

The shout started even before HMCS Kingston came alongside the jetty on Wednesday morning. “Daddy!” called Marianne Sabourin as two tugs guided the ship toward where family members waited to greet sailors back from a six-week drug enforcement mission.

Nova Scotia’s deputy chief medical officer of health says the province needs an electronic vaccination registry. Right now the province’s vaccination records system is paper based, with documents residing within the local public health department of a given district health authority.
