Safety First During Complex Bluenose ReLaunch

Safety will be key when the relaunch of Bluenose II takes place in Lunenburg next weekend. Officials are working around the clock to ensure the launch is successful and iron out logistics. President of the Lunenburg Shipyard Alliance, Peter Kinley, says the launch of the massive schooner is quite complex.

The relaunch of Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador will take place next Saturday before 9AM when tides are high. Thousands of visitors are expected to line the Lunenburg waterfront to watch the historic event.

Gas Prices Drop Nine Cents In Two Days

Gas prices have taken a nine-cent tumble this week. Prices fell six cents early Thursday when the Utility and Review Board used the so-called interrupter clause. New prices typically come in effect on Fridays, but the interrupter allows the board to make unscheduled changes when there's a sudden market shift. As of today, the price of regular self-serve is down another three cents. It's now selling most areas for about $1.34 .
