Yeah, the pond that forms on the Dartmouth side of the bridge every time it rains, really needs to be filled in. The pound can get about 10 feet wide and at least four inches deep because  the water seems to need to travel uphill to reach the drain. Anyone trying to use the crosswalk in this area needs to walk into traffic to avoid the current. Then risks getting splashed by one of the cars that sadly had to wait for us to get around this pond. — Pissed-off Soaked Pedestrian

I don’t know if I missed the memo, but at the bus terminal, the departure times now seem to mean “bus driver is going to wander off and then saunter back eventually, we might leave in 10 minutes, depends if I see my friend.” I understand that things may come up, but this has been a daily occurrence for weeks. — Hey I Have Places To Be, Thanks

Thank you to the city for issuing a winter parking ban for last night when it was ONLY RAINING. And thank you for giving me one of those $50 tickets for breakfast. What will you do with all the money you are collecting? Oh wait, I know: you'll do what you do best and WASTE IT. — Frig Off

Why do you even have a schedule? It would be more accurate to just tell your customers, “Show up at the bus stop two hours before you need to be somewhere and we guarantee a 50 percent chance you'll be on time. May the bus gods smile upon you.” — Cold

We've invested millions to upgrade the transit buses with modern tech. Each bus has a digital display that shows the next stop, and "stop requested" when required. I've been on at least six buses this year, that the stop request isn't displayed. I had my headphones on and didn't hear the bell. So as far as I knew, the driver wasn't going to stop for me. On a crowded bus, it's difficult to get to the driver to ask.

When I've told drivers that the stop request wasn't working, they would laugh at me and tell me their display let them know to stop, so basically fuck off. Like they don't care about customer satisfaction. Since it's happened repeatedly, the drivers haven't reported a problem with the bus, so the drivers must have shut off the display.

I don't think that it's a matter of driver's IQ. Except that these displays were installed for the hearing impaired. If someone is deaf, they won't hear the bell and have no way of knowing if the driver was going to stop for them. That is clearly a human rights violation, as Halifax Transit boasted that all buses are now accessible. It appears that Halifax Transit and the drivers are lying to us.

  If I am to respect your one-metre distance, then will you please PLEASE respect mine? If there is a line at a light, WAIT. YOUR. TURN. IN. LINE. If you don’t have a full meter to pass on the right, please don’t try to squeeze by. A cyclist hit my side mirror this morning while doing just this. Rules of the road exist to keep ALL of us safe and secure, so stop fucking it up with stupid fucking behaviour PLEASE!!

Once a team of healers needed some bored people to help them have a building and keep the lights on and health care and living wage for trauma-response workers. After the bored listed their volunteer role on their CVs, a bored member said: "Why should we believe those workers? They say their caseload reflects violence in our city? They say they need more than crumbs? They say one in three women? They say #wetoo? They say 200,000+ people need more than a $1 million budget and eight clinical counsellors for accessible trauma care?" Anyways, as a bored person I ask how many believable people live in this city? How much time can I say I volunteered as bored here? I'd better move on to my next austerity governance project. I wish you well workers.

I sure hope the Editor PRINTS this, since you're too stupid to use the internet! You told everyone that you were getting your knee fixed, and you were going to get a job. But you are a liar. You got your knee fixed, and continue to stand out there in front of the stores at the business park, drinking and being nasty to people, begging for money that you don't really need or deserve. You have done nothing but lie to everyone. Why you are allowed to continue to stand there, when most of the employees at all the stores can't stand you because of the way you behave and verbally bash people, is beyond comprehension. Time for you to grow up and go away, you lying drunk!

Listen up, arsehole on my car's bumper as we drive the Prospect Road: I'm not going any faster and you can't drive over me. You're so fucking stupid, you don't even realize that if you rear-end into my old clunker, you're automatically at fault. So suck on my middle finger, Rushy McRushRush.
