Copious amounts of graffiti on the Scotia Square northbound bus shelter. Sometimes amusing, sometimes offensive, but always an eyesore. 

Copious amounts of graffiti on the Scotia Square northbound bus shelter. Sometimes amusing, sometimes offensive, but always an eyesore.



Remarks: A little too much time on your hands (Cough! Metro Transit! Cough!), a generous helping of teenage anger and a Sharpie is a lethal combination. Well, maybe not lethal, but certainly annoying. The fact that most riders have a lot of time to kill in the bus shelter is bad enough, but having to stare at some racist, aggressive scrawling is another issue entirely. As the ever-helpful HRM website points out, “Graffiti is a crime!” and what is our duty as citizens if not to report such goings on? We were told that vulgar graffiti is made a priority to be removed before, say, a passage from Proust, or the lyrics to “Stairway to Heaven.”


Who's Responsible?: Metro Transit is responsible for cleaning the bus shelters and reports are sent to them from HRM service requests. Requests to have graffiti removed can be made at 490-4000.
