Province To Pay For Sydney Relocations: Clarke

Mayor Cecil Clarke says the province has agreed to pay for the relocation of 24 homes in a flood-damaged neighbourhood in Sydney. The announcement came after Clarke met with Premier Stephen McNeil and two cabinet ministers in Halifax yesterday. The Mayor says the cost of the relocation is now estimated to be four and a half million dollars. Over 2,200 people have asked for flood relief since the Thanksgiving Day storm, and Clarke says he’s mindful that winter is approaching. He adds they’re trying to move the relocation process along as quickly as possible. 17 property owners in the area met with municipal and provincial officials on Monday and agreed to have their properties torn down. They also agreed to have former neighbourhood designated a no-development zone, and Clarke says that matter will be going before council.

Arrest Warrant Issued In Robbery Case

Cape Breton Regional Police have issued an arrest warrant for a New Waterford man who’s accused of an armed robbery at a taxi stand earlier this week. 33 year-old David Clifford MacLean, from New Waterford, is charged with robbery, possession of a weapon, assault, and assault with a weapon. The charges stem from an armed robbery at Midway Taxi early Wednesday morning, when a masked man entered the business and demanded money from an employee before leaving with an undisclosed amount of money. Police say an employee suffered minor injuries during a brief struggle, but refused medical attention. Anyone with information on MacLean’s whereabouts is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
