Monday July 14th on The Morning News


The summer season is ideal for getting outside with your pet but it also comes with its fair share of health hazards. At 6:45 we get  tips from Dr. Eric Carnegy to help keep your pet happy and healthy during the dog days of summer.

We’re a province of beaches, but our actions have an impact on that ecosystem. Silver Donald Cameron took at look at wonder of beaches in his book, The Living Beach, first published in 1998. He’s republished that book, and he’ll be in at 7:15 to tell us what’s changed over the last 16 years, and how human activity continue to hurt those fragile treasures.

It’s every young hockey players dream to one day hear your name called during the NHL draft.  Our 7:45 guest got to live out that dream recently and he’ll drop by the red table to tell us all about it. Halifax’s own Mason Mcdonald was selected as the 34th overall to play with the Calgary Flames. The 18 year old, who plays junior for the Charlottletown Islanders, was the first goalie taken in the draft. We’ll find out more about what’s in store for Mason on Monday.

Nova Scotia has a rich history of Celtic and traditional music but we know how to Rock N’ Roll as well. There’s a brand new exhibit at The Art Gallery Of Nova Scotia that pays homage to the Rock scene here and it’s fittingly, it’s called Rock Show! At 8:15 we’ll sit down with curator David Diviney to learn more about it.


At 8:45 we’ll get a look at a new photo exhibit by friend of the show, Paul Vienneau. “Death is No Parenthesis” is a collection of work that was inspired by a tragic experience. The photos all explore themes of trauma, recovery and transformation and will be on display at ViewPoint Gallery in Halifax next month.
