Hei Halifax . . . what the F@#K is up with the prices of your rent!? I just moved here from Edmonton, where I was paying $869 for a one bedroom in a low-rise, 5 minutes from West Edmonton Mall. I'm now here looking for a nice one and the prices are about the same! $1000 for your "huge apartment" is a joke . . . who can afford that!? The wages here are frickin low (hmmm, thanks for the $9 an hour jack-ass), your taxes are high (4% in AB), and I get godsmacked by the service charges and prices of everyday commonalities that should be next to nothing. Now, I have two-bits in my pocket after being raped by the deductions on my cheque, and you want how much for that hole in the wall!? Come on . . . unless you're going to be drilling for oil in the harbour next year, take it easy on the rent so we don't have to bunk with 10 other people in a house!!!
