An All-In conversation with Jay Aaron Roy, Founder of Cape & Cowl Comics & Collectibles in Lower Sackville, Turtle Island

Cape & Cowl Comics & Collectibles is a store that specializes in comics, graphic novels, local art, collectibles, games, vintage items, and all sorts of “X” fun and interesting hidden gems. It is also home to the Leighann Wichman Safe Place, a youth-centred drop-in where people are safe to comfortably express their authentic selves.

I recently accepted a Call to Adventure and moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Upon moving, the next adventure was for me to find a comic bookstore… and that’s how, or why, I met Cape & Cowl’s Founder, Jay Aaron Roy. Read More…

NDP Leader on PBO Report on Excess Profits Tax, Paid Sick Leave

At a virtual press conference, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh reacts to the parliamentary budget officer’s report on an excess profits tax.
