It's just a symptom of sprawl and our city leaders have been catering to it for decades. Cookie cutter homes lining the streets of cookie cutter communities with cookie cutter big box - chain - drive-thru - businesses. But I guess growth is growth and who cares about anything else.
Why? The building looked great as it was! This isn't one of those moments when people can blame some crazy historical society for demanding things stay the same at all costs. That banner added a little bit of character to an otherwise characterless, mostly bland and utterly average chain restaurant.
I actually took the time to double check my address and voter eligibility on the HRM website. Yet, I received 3 login/pins in the mail and none of them belonged to me. Reckless and unacceptable.
Students who are not residents of HRM are not eligible to vote.
It's rather condescending to run public consolation sessions after the most important decisions have already been made. It's like someone buying a sports car with my money and than asking me for my thoughts on the color. Our leaders love the word "democracy" but hate the definition.
Was it happy hour when he wrote that email? Just asking.
How the holy fuck did they ever manage to get the Metro Centre built in this city??? I couldn't imagine the types of events we'd be hosting if all we had is the old Halifax Forum. Hey Halifax - The BIG picture is calling - please answer!
