When the Halifax explosion happened, the bell that used to ring in the clock tower at City Hall was knocked out of place. This week, the bell believed to be the original clock tower bell was restored and is once again ringing. District 7 Councillor, Waye Mason, tells us about the surprising journey of that bell, and the fake 'bells' that have been keeping time since the 1990s. If you enjoyed this program and want to hear more programs like it, support The Times Keeper:  https://www.timeskeeper.ca/support/ 
For the last year, Nova Scotians have been able to speak to a committee of Nova Scotia MLAs on Zoom whenever a new bill was making its way through the House of Assembly. On Monday night, the Law Amendments Committee held its first in-person meeting. There was no option to make virtual presentations. Opposition MLAs resisted the change. In this episode, we follow the disagreement that began at Monday night's committee meeting, landed on the floor of the legislature on Wednesday afternoon, and came to some resolution in a scrum with reporters and Premier Tim Houston on Thursday.If you enjoyed this program and want to hear more programs like it, support The Times Keeper:  https://www.timeskeeper.ca/support/
