Fiction

Big Billy

Now in its seventh year, my Big Billy column follows the hilarious weekly adventures of a lovable, bumbling (and fictional) Cape Breton everyman and his family. If he isn’t getting into trouble with his wife Minnie or developing a new get-rich-quick scheme, Billy’s planning revenge against his nemesis neighbour Dave or just sitting at Tim Hortons telling lies with his buddies. Big Billy is published every Friday in the New Waterford Community Press.

Read his ongoing adventures here.
