Teaching staff in the Strait Regional School Board now have a new local agreement.

Officials with the school board and the Nova Scotia Teachers Union signed the contract Wednesday afternoon.

Police say two people have been taken to hospital following a crash in Port Hastings.

Sgt. Al LeBlanc, a spokesperson with the RCMP, says officers were called to the two-vehicle collision on Hwy. 4 shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday; the crash involved a tractor trailer and a car.

LeBlanc tells The Hawk the two occupants in the car, who are both from Whycocomagh, were taken to St. Martha's Regional Hospital in Antigonish by Emergency Health Services with unknown injuries; the male driver of the truck wasn't hurt.

Co-author of report on economic development visits Quad Counties

The president of Acadia University and co-author of a report about economic development in the province was in the Quad Counties Wednesday.

Ray Ivany spoke to chamber members in Antigonish about the report titled Now or Never: An Urgent Call to Action for Nova Scotians.

He said we're starting to realize we're on the edge of an economic development cliff and need to make some changes.

After, Ivany said demographics and economics are part of the problem, and they need to be part of the solution.

"We need more economic activity, we need more wealth creation in the province, so anything that contributes to that is a way of moving from the edge of the cliff," he said. "Frankly, we need more people."

Ivany said there are a number of ways we can go about increasing the population in the province.

"That's going to be a combination of retaining more Nova Scotians here, attracting more immigrants, and repatriating Nova Scotians who are currently living elsewhere," he said.

Ivany said he's pleased people are starting to use the report as a focal point to determine what they can do differently to help turn the economy around.

He said he's pleased with the momentum that's growing, but he's also concerned we'll quickly take our foot off the gas pedal and slow down the progress.

 

UARB members holding hearing on Cabot Links rezoning decision

Members of the province's Utility and Review Board are holding a public hearing at the Inverness Fire Hall Wednesday.

Some Inverness residents have appealed a rezoning decision by Inverness Co. councillors.

The motion to rezone two parcels of land at Cabot Links Golf Course from waterfront development to mixed commercial passed in February.

The decision allows golf course officials to build six single-storey, semi-detached buildings for accommodations.

The public hearing started Wednesday morning, and there's an evening session scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

The hearing could continue Thursday if there's not enough time Wednesday.
