The “Naval Dockyard Clock” near the Halifax ferry terminal has stopped at 6:04, which makes it accurate exactly twice a day.


Remarks: The placard at the base of the clock says that it’s wound twice a week, and is accurate to within a minute---which means someone hasn’t been minding their winding duties. “The clock is HRM, and we’re responsible for repair,” says the city’s streetscape coordinator Stewart MacMillan. “But the winding of the clock is the WDCL,” Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd., a provincial entity. MacMillan contacted the WDCL—turns out the regular clock-winder is unwinding on summer vacation. “The guys who took over just missed it this week,” he says.


Who's Responsible?: A vacationing clock-winder. (Seriously.)

Status: Fixed
