Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of the Women’s March. Over six million people marched in over 600 cities around the world for women’s and human rights. The theme for this year’s global event is “Look Back, March Forward.” Locally, there will be a march tomorrow starting at City Hall at noon.
Amazon announced its shortlist of 20 North American cities still in the running to become the site of the company’s second headquarters – and Halifax did not make the list. You’ll recall we put in a bid for the headquarters site last year; Toronto is the only Canadian city to make the list.
Halifax may not be the choice for Amazon but we have been named a top-five millennial hot-spot in the country, according to property search website Point2Homes. Out of 85 Canadian cities ranked, we are fifth for millennials to settle in based on employment, affordable housing, low crime rates and life-work balance. Now if those millennials were just doctors we could be #1 instead of Quebec! See the full study here: https://www.point2homes.com/news/canada-real-estate/millennial-cities-ranked.html
With other 90’s shows coming back, it’s no wonder someone would want to reboot Party of Five but this time, there will be a bit of a spin: it will be rebooted as an immigration drama. There are reports that the pilot is already being written by the series’ original creators and will focus on five children whose parents were deported back to Mexico. It’s unclear if any of the original cast will make appearances in the new series.
Katy Perry and I have something common and it’s not great looks and cupcake bras: we’re both always late! Apparently Katy cannot make it on time to her American Idol gig; showing up 10-25 minutes after the judges are called to set. It’s rumoured to be an issues behind the scenes but fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie don’t seem to care. It’s also been reported that there is no tension or conflict between the judges. So maybe this whole “Katy Perry is always late” thing is just the studio’s way of creating it?
And that’s your Fast Five!
