Dear Mayor and future Mayors of Halifax

Posted on Tue, Mar 1, 2011 at 9:32 AM

What the HELL!!! Did I seriously hear you consider the option of keeping the skating oval? A lot of people are interested in keeping it on the commons for public use, but you aren't interested in charging the users of the oval a fee for using it? But you do want to use 1 MILLION dollars to fund the oval of what money, mayor? Are YOU paying for it? If I were to guess, it would coming out of OUR pockets! Again, WHAT THE HELL!!! I can think of several better things to spend the money on! Maybe improving the welfare system to help people get out of their money-less hole, help them go on a four year program (Like they do in the states) so that Welfare is a last resort and helps people get on their feet, instead of Welfare being a livelihood? How about cutting down the amount of taxes we have on gas? Why is the tax on gas well over 50%? Why don't you take that money you're thinking about throwing away on the skating oval and put it towards gas taxes? Or maybe put it towards covering more of the costs of medicines that medical insurance doesn't cover, for the people who are really sick? You're fucking cutting all of the funds for schooling, why not give them their funding back? Or fucking lower the costs of University/College so people don't have to die without even coming close to paying off their loans from secondary schooling? Seriously, what the fuck! You (anyone who makes these sort of decisions on our behalf) are all IDIOTS! —Fucking pissed Haligonian
