The end of Point Pleasant Park????

Posted By on Tue, Aug 13, 2019 at 12:01 PM

I recently read in the news that HRM has plans to improve (??) the conditions at Point Pleasant Park. Basically, they want to eliminate 80,000 trees from a section of 100,000 trees in PPP. In the article, you'll see that they plan on leaving the 80,000 felled trees to rot and provide nourishment for the forest. I'm not an expert on wildfires, but I think I know enough that you need to keep the floor of the forest clear of debris. I can only think that these felled trees would create a tinderbox that will burst into flames from a discarded burning cigarette. Are they simply being cheap, so that the company awarded the contract won't have to deal with the cost of disposing of these trees? Or is there a condo developer that wants to acquire this prime piece of property, after it has been leveled by fire? Google "summer tree-thinning post-Juan."

Disability Support Program from community services

Posted By on Thu, Jun 20, 2019 at 2:14 PM

The program is not doing enough for people with physical and mental health disabilities. If a person tries to go get help on their own, like for the proper therapy in helping with PTSD, well, community services considers going to school work, not therapy, so they make you sign up for employment works! If a person is disabled and can't work because of severe physical and mental health issues, why are they told that if they don't sign up for the program, it could effect their funding? That is the line they use on every piece of paper that is sent to clients. This is a form of intimidation. How is it helping anything?

Manic monopoly

Posted By on Sat, Sep 2, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Hey HRM Planners, Councillors or whomever else is approving all of this construction:

It's great to create a growing city, but can you slow the fuck down for a minute? Who the hell is going to live in all of these overpriced condo/apartments? And by the way, allowing a building on the baordwalk/waterfront is just gross and you should all be poked with a stick for allowing that to go through.

There was a time when the old boys wouldn't let anything be built at all, because of historic value, and that was a pain because then buildings just rotted. But now it seems like you're just letting anything go up and at a rapid pace, without regard for aesthetics, history, architecture or just plain ol' common sense.  Did anyone think to stagger the timing of developments? Can't you wait to see how what we have now fills up before shoving other unnecessary condos/apartments/retail spaces down our throats? And don't get me started on the logistical nightmare of manoeuvring the downtown area, where the crane has become the city's official bird.

This summer was a particular disaster, and it's not like you didn't know it would be a big tourism year, what with 150 and Tall Ships and all. Did someone just say "hey, let's invite all kinds of tourists here and then not let them get around”? It's like someone is playing a crazy-ass game of monopoly up in here and it's a fucking free-for-all. Enough! DON'T SELL BOARDWALK!!

Seriously. Stop it. —Developing Distaste

Halifax says "grasscycling"

Posted By on Mon, Aug 21, 2017 at 10:45 AM

Recycling halifax has new radio ad about "grasscycling."

"Grasscycling is when you let your lawn cuttings fall into your lawn. It is a great new idea and you should try it!"

OMFG! City hall is paying someone a good salary to come! Hey, dumbass! It is called mowing with a mulching blade. It has been around for many many decades. Just because you gave it a new word doesn’t mean that it is new.

I am pissed. I am pissed that someone pays you a salary. I am pissed that you are so smug to think that this is something that only you know about. I am floored that you don't recognize that this is not something that requires a high priced educational ad on the radio.

Do the taxpayers a favour and quit your job so someone worth their paycheque can replace you. —In the real world, you'd be fired for wasting money.

Money wasters

Posted By on Wed, Jun 21, 2017 at 4:29 PM

Walking along Canal Street in Dartmouth, I come across a little park with a walking trail...only right in the middle of the trail is some stupid looking wooden erection.  Not even sure what it is... something to do with boats, some old historic boat launch or something.  How much did the city pay to put that there, right in the middle of the walking trail? Nobody wants to see that garbage?  Why is the city so obsessed with history.  MOVE ON! Why are you wasting tax payers money on this bullshit, that's nothing more than an eyesore and an obstruction.  Meanwhile, Nova Scotians can barely afford the shirts on their backs, they're taxed so hard. These lame ass politicians need to find a better way to waste our money.  Nobody is standing around looking at your stupid whatever-the-fuck. It sucks and so do you. —Politicians are crooks

This government is a sack of poison

Posted on Thu, Jan 26, 2017 at 4:00 PM

To all the teachers: don't go along with the latest contract offer. You're being sold down the river by your own executive and if you go along with it then you'll just end up taking every other public sector worker with you. This government is a sack of poison laying waste to everything it touches. Have no further dealings with them except through arbitration. —I hate the Liberal government

Hey, Government, it seems we have a serious problem that can be resolved by the simple stroke of a pen, so fucking do something about it!!!

Posted on Wed, Jan 18, 2017 at 12:00 PM

With the science surrounding the use of lead bullets and hunting, why the fuck are we still allowed to buy and use them in our province/country? When hunters kill an animal, they leave the carcass for the wildlife to devour, leaving shreds of the lead bullet for the animals to consume, leaving eagles and other small creatures to die a slow, painful death from lead poisoning.

We can stop this, it's too fucking easy. We have a responsibility to protect that which cannot protect itself, period, end of story. What are we waiting for? Do we make lead bullets in N.S.? Does our economy somehow rely on the sale of lead bullets? What is the fucking problem here? The house is in session, laws are being made, what's the problem? We pay our politicians well because they have to make the tough decisions, right? Then why after decades of knowing this are we still waiting for decision to be made?

As far as I'm concerned, we should have an amnesty period where the government buys back lead bullets at a ratio of 2 for 1, and after that, if you are caught hunting with them, you lose your guns, your vehicle, your house, everything. Period!!! There is no excuse for this harmful practice, we know better and we have a responsibility to change our ways. —Poprah

What was with all the fluffy questions?! He had Dallaire on hand for the obvious hard questions on PTSD and the Desmond murder-suicide! Instead inarticulate, vapid questions from yokels.

Labour peace

Posted on Thu, Nov 24, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Can't the teachers and government come together? Come on guys!  Maybe each side could give a little. How about this: One percent a year for wages to keep up with inflation; Keep the long service award but have a reasonable size of payout by either capping it or else paying a certain dollar amount for each year of service ($365 for each year worked). No service award should be higher than the annual salary of the average working Nova Scotian or the amount earned by someone making minimum wage in a year; Teachers should pay some of their retirement health benefits (25 percent) because that's only fair as other public sector workers have to pay something. I think we need a little 'labour peace of mind' in the province, which means being fair while not bankrupting us to get there. Hey Coast, how about running an online survey about what people think is a fair offer for the teachers for: wage increases, maximum  long service award payout and the percent teachers should pay for retirement health benefits? —Two Cents Worth

Change you can believe in

Posted on Wed, Nov 9, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I realize that you are probably still riding a high from your recent electoral win and keen to get to work. But I'm pretty sure that if any elected official was greeted by an enthusiastic supporter while exiting a Dartmouth shopping mall on a Saturday morning with the words “Stick it to the ***** man,” said elected official should probably come up with a better response “You gotta do what you gotta do.” Voter apathy aside, I'd have to hazard a guess that with the changing demographics of your district, your win was as a result of votes from more than a few ***** men (and women) —Judge Dread

The ‘Halifax’ ‘election’

Posted on Thu, Oct 20, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I have a confession to make: I have never voted at the ‘municipal’ level, since the province dissolved that level of government in 1996. It's a kangaroo court of a top-down, city-county amalgamation that I can't will myself to participate in, since doing so would represent an acceptance by me of what occurred, and its legitimacy. Perhaps ironically, more than 350,000 citizens in Halifax County had their cherished local government—traditionally the level of government most accessible, most accountable and closest to the people, most democratic—dissolved without so much as a non-binding plebiscite to indicate support or consent, and replaced it with a county wide ‘municipal government’ that devotes none of its time to my community, except in some dictatorial sense. To cap it all of, the districts are gerrymandered to cut through traditional urban neighborhoods and communities in an effort to ‘guide’ our transition to serfdom. We're down to 16 councillors now, for a landmass the size of Lebanon. Twice as many households in my district in my community than in many others in the ‘municipality.’ Thirty-five percent turnout in the last election? Only 16 percent bothered turning out to elect the last councillor? That's a crisis of legitimacy, not engagement. I know and have gotten in touch with councillors, prospective or active. I'm concerned with issues and I have love for my community. But my city no longer exists and so, I no longer have any vote to give. The province needs a wakeup call when it comes to best practices in democracy, regional governance and regional resource sharing. HRM is, and always will be, a failure. —Nova Scotia, the New Uzbekistan
