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

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

Alton Protest heroes

Posted on Fri, Oct 7, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I want to express how proud I am of the people who are out on the front lines fighting big business in Alton. The government throws out land treaty deals whenever the atrocities become more profitable. This practice of contaminating clean water for a business investment should be laughable. After all who in their right mind would trade life for money? Everyday the government sells us or our freedoms for profit. The people out there protesting are heroes. Throw caution to the wind and put yourself right on the front lines. So many of us are scared to or unable to because we're bogged down working the bullshit lives the government forces us into. I work for the oppressing force handling security at the protest site and have expressed my displeasure with said employer to the point where I think I will leave. Throw away a good paying job for your beliefs? Why, fuck yes. I'm no sheep. And I will be happy without a job if I have clean water. The plan of the government is to marketize all natural resources. The stuff in life that used to be free. Fight the Power. Keep up the good work! There are lots of us who can't be there, who support you!! The sooner we get back to marching and protesting like the ‘60s, the sooner we, the people, get our power back. —Maybe Not!!??

Not Getting My Vote

Posted on Tue, Oct 4, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I got my slip in the mail today and decided to have a look at what the contenders for my district are saying they have to offer. Of the three choices, you are the only one that I can't find anything for. I found a couple articles from 2011 about how you were (albiet what sounds like unjustly) kicked off of a bus and another for 'rate my professor'. All the entries before this September (2016) rate you as Poor or Awful. Either a lot has changed in your teaching methods or you have 5 or 6 shills posting favourable reviews of you since this is literally the only thing I could find about you aside from your bus incident. —Basic Websites Are Very Affordable and Important

Let's see real change this election

Posted on Tue, Sep 27, 2016 at 4:00 AM

We as citizens of Halifax Regional Municipality should be demanding much more from our Mayor and Councillors. Are we tired of the lack of garbage cans and filth throughout our city? Are we tired of the lack of benches at bus stops not to mention lack of bus shelters? Are we tired of waiting for buses in the rain, sleet, snow, cold and wind? Are we tired of jumping over snow banks to get on or off buses most of the winter? Are we tired of the half assed job the companies the city contracts out to clear our streets and sidewalks of snow and ice do? Well are we? They don't care about our well being or our safety because they do not have to take these buses and therefore are oblivious to our plights. I propose that everyone who can vote in the upcoming election calls the Mayor and their councilor and demand that they take transit to work a determined amount of days per month as well as Transit management. If not complied with, offenders should be penalized as a deduction on their salary. I think maybe if this should ever happen we would see a remarkable improvement in the clearing of snow and ice. Imagine, seniors with walkers, people in wheelchairs, etc, could actually go outside and take a bus in the winter! Are we tired of the status quo? You bet we are. Let's do something about it. Things don't change because we roll over and take whatever they dish out. If enough of us yell long and loud enough, things will change. They have to. —I want to see the Mayor long jump a snow bank this winter

Greedy Retired Teachers

Posted on Tue, Sep 20, 2016 at 4:00 AM

There are hundreds of substitute teachers in Halifax, young people desperately seeking work in their chosen field. Many of these folks are bumped from the meager sub jobs available in favour of those retired teachers with huge pensions looking to finance their next European tour. How the fuck is this fair? Those rancid old farts cling to these jobs with embedded fingernails while young subs can't find a shred of work. Besides, do we need any more godddamn Boomers ruining future generations like they did to their own? —School Board Only Wants RICH Retired Teachers For Subs
