The NSLC express stores are the epitome of big corporate booze. Most of what they carry are the mass-market products of Labatt, Molson, Diageo, Gallo and the like. Great if you want Keiths, Captain Morgan or Smirnoff, not so much if you want something out of the mainstream tastes. The merchandising in the express stores is bizarre, like they took the top sellers in their big stores and moved them into these small ones while still retaining a huge number of shelf facings for each product. Just the opposite of a convenience store model of a little bit of a lot of things. They are a big disappointment.
We already pay for waste disposal though taxes. If HRM would stop making citizens clean and press every piece of garbage they throw out maybe people would follow a simpler set of rules. Here's a scoop: the only way busiensses are going to pay for things to be sorted according to HRM's ridiculous standards is through higher prices passed on to consumers. A crew building a house is not going to separate the paper instructions from the boxboard label from the plastic bag a light fixture is wrapped in from the cardboard box it came in and set all that out in separate piles. What next, Halifax Water refusing #2 in toilet flushes? These people need to start doing their jobs and stop trying to offload their labor on to us.
But David Fraser says "The Coast is trustworthy"? I think I need a new lawyer as he is obviously rather addled at the moment.
I notice that Mr, Dube is tweeting today, so he is alive and presumably well and free to scroll through Twitter.
I'd rather have the cash on a bank account earning interest than in that evidence room. We all know what would happen to it there.
Miserable product, miserable business. The decline of Canadian society is speeding up thanks to Trudeau's love affair with this stuff.
