HALIFAX IS LOSING ITS MASCOT – ‘THEODORE TOO’ – THE TUGBOAT IS UP FOR SALE FOR $495.000.

Trust the coronavirus for cutting tourism revenue in Nova Scotia. Ambassadors Gray Line can no longer subsidize the tug boat’s daily tours around Halifax harbour and under the bridges. Normally it would seat 49, but with social distancing that number could drop to an estimated 12. The vessel was built in DAYSPRING, Nova Scotia, and is a replica of the title character in a CBC children’s television program between 1993 to 2001.

CEO OF CANADA’S LARGEST CRYPTO CURRENCY COMPANY HAS DIED, TAKING PASSWORDS WITH HIM

GERRY COTTEN, 30, was in India opening an orphanage, when he passed away taking the company’s passwords to his grave. Now Quadriga CX, based in HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, is in crisis mode. His wife is unable to find the passwords or keys that would unlock the wallets, worth about $250-million. “Cold wallets” are essentially offline storage systems that protect funds from hacking and theft. They’re locked solid without passwords.  The company has about $375,000 in cash while owing the equivalent of $250-million to about 92,000 users. Mr. Cotten died on December 9th with complications from Crohn’s disease.
