Halifax regional council has removed Councillor Matt Whitman from all committees for 3 months for breaching provisions of the code of conduct. Yesterday at regional council when it was decided the complaints against him would be discussed privately Whitman left the meeting. Council has not revealed any details of the complaints it reviewed.
Police say their investigation into a suspicious death has led them to arrest a man for unrelated drug trafficking charges. In February 2016 police responded to a report about a 16 year old girl in medical distress at a residence on Macara Street. Walter John Mitchell is scheduled for court as police continue to investigate the young girls death.
Today the RCMP and Canadian Armed Forces are teaming up to hold a joint recruitment session. The idea is to draw people who might have interest in one or both organizations. The event is taking place at RCMP headquarters in Dartmouth from 6:30PM-9:30PM.
