Just ridiculous

Posted on Thu, Dec 18, 2014 at 4:00 AM

In the history of this city has there ever been a construction project that was welcomed with open arms? I mean seriously, though every project I see or read about is facing opposition either from a loud handful of citizens or a city councillor. We have how many empty lots and derelict buildings that just sit there, and sit there? I'm 25 and I've looked at the same empty gravel lots for my entire life. The minute a developer wants to put a building up or any development they are met with such fierce opposition they generally just walk away and don't come back. I see The Coast has dedicated their issue to those of us that have to leave, but will there ever be a reason to stay? I hear the term "have province" all the time and it seriously depresses me. I love Halifax and Nova Scotia but we really need an attitude adjustment. Our downtown is only by name because it’s literally "down" town. City Hall is there but do they look out their windows? —Ben
