NB to NS -Deadliest Highway TansCan#2- Nearly Fix This final section -- which alone has taken three years to build -- is the current route between Grand Falls and Long Creek, the scene of so many crashes that the accident rate is twice that of the national average. Between 1997 and 2001, 807 accidents took place on the road. Twenty-seven of them were fatalities, in which 34 people died. http://www2.canada.com/edmontonjournal/news/story.html?id=4cebe4a2-7ef4-4bf8-91f6-32656ac3c505

Highway 101 was once known as Nova Scotia's deadliest highway. Recently, that moniker has gone to Highway 103 along the south shore, where 10 people died last year.101 loops around Yarmouth back up to halifax via 103
According to the provincial Department of Transportation, 29 people have been killed in crashes on Highway 103 since 2006, compared to 14 on Highway 101.An online petition calls on the provincial and federal governments to twin Highway 103 between exits 5 and 13, and upgrade the road to Exit 19 by 2010. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/nova-scotia/story/2009/03/06/highway-101-funding.html
The 101 and 103 both are littered with crosses that mark many victims of fatal crashes.
The 101 is also known as the Harvest Highway.
The province's agricultural heartland, the Annapolis Valley, is honoured, as Highway 101 will now be known as the “Harvest Highway.”
Highway 101 twinning project designed to reduce the number of motor vehicle-related fatalities may now do just the opposite, according to some. A newly-twinned section of Highway 101 between Falmouth and Avonport has already met with some criticism.
At their Dec. 9 session, members of West Hants municipal council declared the recently christened “Harvest Highway” an “accident waiting to happen” -- one day after its official opening.
Councillors said the opening was a rush job that could only end in an even greater death toll. http://www.novanewsnow.com/article-282577-Harvest-Highway-on-a-collision-course.html

It has only been in the past few years that Halifax has gain popularity with the music scene. AC/DC to perform on Aug. 6 - @ Magnetic Hill- Moncton NB
Magnetic Hill has been a top attraction in NB since 1933, just off the TC 2 Highway
Stories about a strange road where the wagon would run up on the horses heels when going uphill go back to the 1880's. In 1933 stories of cars rolling uphill without power peaked the curiosity of three newspaper reporters from the Saint John Telegraph Journal. In August of 1933 they traveled to Moncton and spent hours trying every hill they came to in hopes of unraveling the mystery. After 5 hours of no success they stopped to stretch their legs on the way home and you guessed it. . . the car started to roll uphill. Slowly at first and then with gathering momentum the car climbed uphill without power. They spent a couple of hours retrying the hill and using all the equipment they had brought to discover the secret. They noticed the water on the side of the road also running uphill. That ruled out magnetic properties. They decided it must be an optical illusion, but how and why they didn't know. - http://www.magnetichill.com/english.htm

See: Haunted Sites of Halifax & Mcnabs Island for more folklore

Controversy in the past over this claim stems from the fact that the Earth is not a perfect sphere, and therefore the halfway mark lies approximately 16 km North of the 45th paralle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewiacke,_Nova_Scotia

According to Sloan's official website, the band's name refers to a friend's nickname. Their friend Jason Larsen was called Slow One by his French-speaking boss, which with the French accent sounded more like Sloan.

As a result, it is Larsen who appears on the cover of the Peppermint EP. wiki
