Fast & Curious: Short Takes on Random Things

BCB Board

Business Cape Breton (BCB), the Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s “economic development entity” has finally gotten around to updating its listing with the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stock Companies. It now has nine directors, having added Jim Kehoe and Darren McFadgen and lost Alastair MacLeod. Parker Rudderham is now registered as BCB’s board chair while Marlene Lovett remains secretary/treasurer.

This, then, is the CBRM’s economic development arm — a publicly funded body, staffed by pseudo-civil servants under the watchful eye of a gaggle of local businesspeople.

What could possibly go wrong?
