Help Me Feel Better About Clayton Park

Posted on Mon, Sep 12, 2011 at 10:04 AM

Pretty annoyed that I can travel the world and go through some pretty risky scenarios and still feel like it's manageable, but yet when I come home to Halifax (I recently moved back after 10 years away), I'm terrified of the unpredictability of Clayton Park.

I'm pissed, I really want to be able to go to the pub at night and walk the 1 block to my house without thinking I'm going to get attacked or harassed by the bastards I see running around at night. What really worries me is the lady at the corner store always telling me to "stay out of trouble" (do I look like a drug addict or something??) or a recent event, two women got followed by some guys in a car that ended with a taxi driver getting stabbed. Wtf! Maybe someone can clear the air for me, because after 10 years living in Vancouver I think it's pretty pathetic I'm afraid to walk home at 2am from the pub... —Single White Female, Terrified to Walk Home
