Did You Know?

In January, 1755, Canada's first official Post Office was opened in Halifax with Benjamin Franklin, a printer from Philadelphia and William Hunter, Deputy Postmaster General for the British Colonies in North America, in charge. Source: Canada Post

On 31 January 1774, Benjamin Franklin was dismissed as Deputy Postmaster General because of his writings and other activities associated with the American Revolution. Hugh Finlay, along with John Foxcroft, was then appointed joint Deputy Postmaster General for the northern district of Britain's North American colonies, extending from Quebec to Virginia.

C.E.D. Community Economic Development
Across Nova Scotia, people are banding together with one goal in mind - to make their communities better places to live and work. They're doing C-E-D: community economic development.
Common Dreams
It's been said that dreams are our roadmaps to the future. If so, where are we headed? Common Dreams offers an eclectic mix of politics, issues and breaking news with an emphasis on progressive perspectives that are increasingly hard to find with our corporate-dominated media.
