This is incredibly sleazy. He is always going to all the teas because he knows that the elderly vote.
I think this shows he doesn't really have any respect for them other than a vehicle to stay in the Mayor's chair.
What type of person does this sort of thing? There are no words.
I know this girl. She lives around the corner from me. Super stylish. Always looking good... her roommate too actually. I think they share a closet or something...
@mcgaidheal I notice that your last post was deleted. For the best I believe.
1 - you never actually said what they did other than an ad hominem attack which was an justified.
2 - Why does Mr. Murphy have to go to jail? You never said what he did. While I do believe there is a residual culture of "old boys club" or "sexism" (if you want to take it that far). You went to court? With Calder? With Murphy?
3 - Do you understand that he is the only person EVER to speak out against the HRP? Do you what type of balls that takes? Did you read the article? Do you know what that did to the man? He has to be one of the most ethical and morally strong people in the city - it would be great to have someone like that as mayor. Have you ever read anything about the man? He put killers in jail: read what he did about Shrubsall... you obviously have just not done your homework and it's sad. If you want someone ethical someone who does the right thing, someone who works to clean up institutions - he's done it all. He's your candidate...
4 - Again, read his bio the idea that he is a one trick pony is absurd - he worked all throughout the HRP for 30 years and won all sorts of distinctions, he chose to walk the beat so he could make a difference, he was head of operations for a company with 1500 employees nationally, he has a farm, he has his own investigation business, he has a family, grand kids, he has taught Post Secondary education... he's actually done more than most and would bring a fresh perspective and some Honor to the Office of the Mayor.
I took the time to research him, including calling his team (I got to talk to him directly... how is that for accessible?). I was going to volunteer for Savage if he ran. But no way now. Having talked to Martin, got his vision of the city and talked to people around him as to why they are there he has my vote, my support and I will be volunteering for him once the time comes around.
@mcgaidheal I don't even know where to start with this. 1 - There is no Councillor named Sue Fougere; 2 - I am pretty sure what you are saying about Patrick Murphy could get you in trouble with the law; and 3) he is actually the complete opposite of what you are saying he PUT VIOLENT OFFENDERS IN JAIL. I talked to a reporter about him and word is he never lost a homicide case he took to court... you should read the link below this story: "The Last Best Hope" Tom Martin is a legendary cop obsessed with solving Halifax’s increasing number of unsolved murders...
Congrats Lauren on being the real winner... I got the poster of your quote from Nocturne in my office. Did The Coast get one of those?
I think that the Twitcoast should have been ineligible. The sample population is biased.
This is great.
