Unions to work with NS Government on representation

Media Release from the NS Federation of Labour
Halifax, N.S. - Leaders of the four health care unions who represent employees of the District Health Authorities and the IWK Health Center are working with Government on a new option for representation of those employees after the provincial health authority is established on April 1.

Frontier Discovery

Lastweek brought a stopover of the laden capesize bulker Frontier Discovery for bunkers. As a cape size, she is too large to fit through either the Panama or Suez Canals, and is typically restricted to working one ocean, as leaving requires sailing around the southern tip of Africa or South America.

She doesn't look that large form this angle, but the bridge wings certainly give her away.

Halifax Transit increases Alderney ferry service

Monday, March 2, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Halifax Transit is advising Alderney ferry passengers increased crossings will begin this evening to accommodate the Macdonald Bridge re-decking project.

Halifax Harbour Bridges initiated its nightly closure of the Macdonald Bridge last night and will continue to do so from Sundays to Thursdays between 7 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.  

It is important to note peak weekday commuting travel will not be affected by the ‘Big Lift’ project.

Halifax Transit is increasing service on the Alderney to Halifax ferry route beginning this evening (March 2) as a way to help ease the inconvenience caused by the bridge work. Weekday service will expand to include 15-minute departures after 6 p.m. until 11:45 p.m., and Sunday service will now begin at 6:30 a.m. on a 30 minute frequency until 11:45 p.m.

Shuttle bus service will also be provided in place of routes that normally travel across the Macdonald Bridge. Passengers travelling to Dartmouth will disembark at the Scotia Square Terminal and board a shuttle at the MetroLink bus stop. The shuttle will also service stops along Gottingen Street as far as North Street. Passengers will cross the MacKay Bridge, disembarking at the Highfield Terminal or Bridge Terminal in Dartmouth.
