Anne Moratto | September 28, 2016 | 12:13 PM

90-year-old Mabel Robinson has been running her salon business since receiving her hairdressing and cosmetology certificate from Boston's Wilfred Academy in 1946, making it the longest-running business of its kind in Atlantic Canada, if not in the country.

She is the subject of  a National Film Board documentary Mabel, directed by Teresa MacInnes, which premiered  at the Atlantic Film Festival.
