– Nova Scotia RCMP have made 11 arrests and laid multiple charges relating to trafficking of cocaine and prescription pills.
The arrests and charges are the result of a three-month long RCMP investigation involving 25 officers in Lunenburg County.
Those charged will appear in court on various dates throughout this month, next month and February and March of 2018.
-Former IWK Health Centre CEO Tracy Kitch has repaid $9,720.39 in outstanding personal expenses charged to the hospital just two days after the hospital said it would pursue legal action against her to retrieve it.
Kitch stepped down from her post as chief executive in late August a week before an independent audit found she had accumulated over $47,000 in personal charges for things like air travel, hotel costs, data overages and car rentals.
Nova Scotia’s auditor general’s office is looking into the IWK’s books and practices, and the hospital’s board has referred the matter of Kitch’s expenses to Halifax Regional Police.
