Thurs May 22nd on The Morning News


Farmers markets are a staple of our economy here in Nova Scotia. Thousands of people shop at a variety of markets across the province helping to keep Nova Scotia producers in business. At 6:45 Paul will talk with Chef Renee Lavalle about a new study that will be released Thursday that will have more insight into how these markets are cultivating our local economy.

Preston Manning will drop by the red table at 7:15 to talk about his new non-profit organization called ” The Manning Centre for Building Democracy”. He served as an MP from 1993 to 2001 and founded two political parties that eventually became the official Opposition in Parliament and laid the foundation for the New Conservative party of Canada. Tune into The Morning News to hear about what he’s doing now and what he thinks about the state of democracy in our country today.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to climb the highest mountain on Earth? Climber, writer and filmmaker Dianne Whelan will join us at 7:45  to tell us more about her new book called 40 Days at Base Camp. She’ll also speak about the recent tragedy on the mountain that claimed the lives of 16 Nepalese Sherpas.

At 8:15 we’ll meet a singer-songwriter who has learned a thing or two about touring through the Maritimes over the years. Last year Ontario’s Rory Taillon ventured East to play shows in March and he learned quickly that the weather can change on a dime and that audiences here on the Coast LOVE their live music and that’s why he’s back in Halifax.

Summer time is on the way, so it’s time to spruce up your wardrobe. Local fashion designers and boutique owners from J&R Grimsmo will stop by at 8:45 with some summer fashion staples for any age.
