A patrol was made, and the construction site was monitored by an officer.

East Hants RCMP is urging the motoring public to exercise patience on the roadways as road work at this time of year is inevitable. Plan your trips accordingly and give yourself plenty of time to get where you’re going.

On May 7, East Hants RCMP responded to a call for service after it was reported that an elderly couple were involved in a heated dispute inside the restaurant.

On arrival, officers learned that the couple were visiting Canada from England and had stopped at the Subway for a bite to eat when an argument ensued.

One was upset that the other started eating without them and proceeded to throw their footlong at them. The argument continued into the parking lot.

Officers were able to calm them down and both apologized for their behaviour citing that they were tired from their long flight.
