Local businesses suffer as Acadia strike enters second week

October 28, 2007

The mayor of Wolfville, Nova Scotia says that Acadia University's faculty strike is hurting local businesses.  Scores of students have left town now that the strike is in its second week.  The downtown core is quiet: grocery stores and restaurants in particular are feeling the most impact.  About half of Acadia's 3,000 full-time students are estimated to have gone home to wait out the strike.
