Aphasia: Hope Is A Four Letter Word screens June 15 

Film shows one night only at Park Lane

Aphasia: Hope is a Four Letter Word screens Wednesday, June 15 at Park Lane Cinema, 7pm. The film sheds a light on aphasia, an acquired communication disorder impairing a person’s ability to process language due to trauma to the brain, such as a stroke. Tickets are $20, purchased in advance by calling 445-4960 or emailing, or at the door prior to the screening. The Nova Scotia Aphasia Association, a non-profit, is sponsoring the event.

Written by North Carolina writer, actor, and director, Jim Gloster, the documentary is about Gloster’s friend and fellow actor, Carl McIntyre, who suffered a massive stroke in 2005 at age 44 and developed aphasia as a result.

The film’s screening will be followed by a short talk and then a question and answer period with McIntyre.

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
