How about you go jump in a lake, instead?

Posted on Tue, Sep 7, 2010 at 10:38 PM

It has become a yearly occurrence... "The water is so safe now,: they say, "that you can swim in it again!"

It's a great show for the politicians. A look-how-much-we've-done spectacle that, one way or another, gets people talking.

The problem is that, without fail, the newly swimmable beaches close within a day or two. Rain is usually the culprit, flooding the system and letting turds by the gallon flow back into the harbour.

Here's an idea. Fix that shit. Not just well enough for a photo op, fix it so it doesn't become unfixed when it rains. This is the Maritimes... It rains here. Enough that it shouldn't be the Achilles Heel of any major project.

And lastly, no one who has lived in Halifax for more than a few years is EVER going to swim in the harbour. You may fool some college kids, Mr. Mayor, but Haligonians KNOW what's been in the water, whether you say it's all gone or not.

Stop wasting our time with distractions and just get the damned job done. —Sick of this shit
