Re: “Asshole with the seeing-eye dog

Heh, heh, heh. The dog probably did a better job at singing karaoke than most of the drunken fools who thought they had a good voice.

Re: “Continuity errors

Good job Mr Boon. This is a very serious issue and no amount of, " nothing to see here" from any of these city employees can diminish that fact. This is mostly a factual piece, there is no question of "balance" as the other poster said.

Re: “Buses gone to hell

Having lived multiple cities that KNOW how to do transit (Moncton, Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle etc....) everytime I'm back in Halifax I am amazed how BADLY Metro transit does it!!

Re: “Buses gone to hell

Why don't they bike? Crazy ass drivers will run you down for inconveniencing them for 2 seconds - while you obey the law... that's why.

Re: “Continuity errors

This is horrifying. The police should be holding themselves to a 100% continuity rate when it comes to handling evidence - it's literally one of their most important jobs because to NOT do it would undermine everything else they do! If the department is unable to perform the simple task of recording and safely storing evidence then they shouldn't be allowed to wander the city with uniforms and guns.

Re: “Letters to the editor, June 23, 2016

The justice system is not failing women. Especially in the Gomeshi case.

According to Judge Horkins, the witnesses “withheld evidence,” colluded” with other witnesses, were “willfully careless with the truth”, had “factual inconsistencies”, “chose not to be honest with the police”, “played chicken with the justice system”, were ”deceptive and manipulative” etc., etc. It is these witnesses, not the justice system, that is failing women.

The public is not “more interested in preserving a young man's swimming career, maintaining that his life should not be ruined for 20 minutes of "action." The father’s comments were met with public outrage.

It is simply not true that “Both the media and our justice system minimize sexual assault.” Is there no tv or wifi in Adsum Centre? That trial and the other mentioned events were and continue to be all over the media.

DeCoutere and colluding company lost. Power and privilege didn’t “make a mockery of women”. They did that all by themselves. Blame them, not the justice system for setting back the cause.

Re: “Buses gone to hell

GV is spot on. Basically, plan to be at your stop 45-60 minutes. Within that time you can expect your bus.

Why more people aren't riding bikes, especially during the nicer summer months is beyond me. I guess on the chance your bus shows within 5 minutes of that 60 minute window you can always use that extra time at your appointment to look at the want ads in Moncton.

I'm pretty sure the schedule (ha) is loose enough to account for old people questions and exact change finders so that the bus driver can make up the difference and be at the stop on time. Even if I hit every red light and stop for every pedestrian I can show up for work on time as can most people who drive, walk, or pedal.

Re: “Dating vs single

Yes, mizz, I hope you have lots of vibrators and a body pillow, cuz you're likely gonna need both if you let your bitterness eat away at you. Being single doesn't make you brave or confident, it makes you incompatible with what's left over. Finding the confidence to trust another person (judging by what you say is out there) to share your life with, now that's brave. You sound ridiculous, all the people in relationships are unhappy and boring, but if you found the right guy, I'm guessing you'd be all over being in a relationship with him. Or are you saying that even if you found the right guy you'd remain single cuz it's the MOST awesome? I call bullshit!

Re: “Buses gone to hell

If I arrive 10-15minutes early for my bus on spring garden, there is a 50-50 chance that I have missed the bus and I have to wait an hour for the next bus.....sometime an hour and 20 minutes for the next one because the next bus is late.

If I consider how far I can travel in an hour and 20 minutes by bicycle, taking a bicycle sounds like a less horrible option.

That is how we do things in Halifax. We use the 'less horrible' logic.

Re: “Continuity errors

Wait now Humeyni, I have no vendetta against Jacob. I like his writing - when it's balanced. I don't think the story is balanced. I think he would do better elsewhere; I have made both these points previously, several times, on different articles he's written.

AS I stated, "...can we wait to see the end of the investigation before we jump to conclusions?" You clearly are jumping to the conclusions I predicted that which people would come.

Is that any clearer for you?

So, is this The Coast's way of retracting un-proven allegations?

Re: “Buses gone to hell

Way to go Hey MACLEod for telling it like it is to the ignorant and self-entitled. There is so much the average Joe has no clue about when it comes to Halifax Transit. If they want a perfect world they should go find a big rock, dig a hole, crawl underneath it and stay there until every last one of transit's buses rust into dust.
