What happened Halifax?

Posted on Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 1:14 PM

Downtown Halifax is sitting at a D- grade. With restaurants closing, the boutique district almost non-existent, what's to draw people downtown? To bring people to what makes Halifax, Halifax: the small businesses, the people who put their life into their stores to bring Halifax some character and personality. I don't even need to mention the gigantic massive ugly eye sore of a hole in the centre of the city. What happened to downtown Halifax? Barrington? Blowers? Now slowly becoming a ghost town. How will small business survive? What's the draw to bring people downtown? A city council that does nothing but have meetings with no actions. A Business Commission that isn't focused on the immediate need. Where are the fresh ideas? The risks? The leaps of faith to breathe new life into a downtown core that's slowly dying? —Yup
