Another one bites the dust

Posted on Thu, Feb 26, 2015 at 4:00 AM

Hey Halifax! I’m leaving. After 10 years of trying to make a go of it here I got tired of; being paid $20,000 less than I would receive for the same job in Ottawa, more expensive taxes than most anywhere else, costs of living (RENT) higher than Chicago, and in general your anti-intellectualism and mistrust of innovation. You’ve got smart and caring people here trying to build momentum around efficient and creative economic and social development policy change, but the people and intuitions that form the dominant culture don’t see what’s in it for them—so there you have it. I can’t wait to check out the coast line of British Columbia. I hear their ocean is beautiful too. Maybe I’ll bike to get there. I hear they have great bike lanes and public transit. Good luck! —Notaquitter
