Catherine Banks wins Governor General's Award

Posted on Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 4:05 PM

Earlier today it was announced that Halifax playwright Catherine Banks won the Governor General's Award for Drama for her play Bone Cage (Playwrights Canada Press). In the press release it says: "With her expert command of dramatic metaphor, Catherine Banks shows us the life-blood of rural Canada flowing through the conflicted, bone-caged human heart. What is the cost to the human spirit, she asks, when good people are forced by circumstance to kill the thing they love – in this case, the Canadian wilderness? The playwright finds that which is most noble in unexpected places, the heroic in what appears to be the simplest of lives."

Just waiting to hear back from Banks--she spent a day sequestered in Montreal doing interviews.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
