Love for The Coast

Posted By on Wed, Dec 4, 2019 at 1:10 PM

My very first job was delivering The Daily News as a teenager; sad to see Metro go. Have been reading The Coast since you first started. Hope you find the printer that is right for you so we can all continue reading your great Halifax paper. Cheers!

Best bus driver in HRM

Posted By on Fri, Nov 29, 2019 at 9:09 AM

I want to shout out the driver of the 3 who always stops for people when they’re running to catch his bus. You’ve saved my roommate and I from being late for work numerous times, and I’m sure there are others who can say the same! In all my years of being a Halifax Transit passenger, he’s the only one I’ve seen do this, which is why I’ve named him the best bus driver in HRM. Love!

Citadel Hill staff

Posted By on Sat, Nov 16, 2019 at 10:55 AM

Big shout-out to the Sean Connery lookalike who I think is in charge of security at Citadel Hill. Our little guy was looking at a long stay in the hospital. He has a little boy's fascination with big guns, so on the way to the IWK we stopped to tour the fort when it was all closed up. Let's just say Sean bent the rules a little bit and made a little boy's day a little less scary.

Not a finders-keepers type of guy!

Posted By on Thu, Oct 17, 2019 at 4:26 PM

Not too long ago, I purchased a pair of Ralph Lauren sneakers from Winners in Mic Mac Mall. About half an hour after leaving the mall I noticed the shoes were not with me in my car. I quickly realized my stupidity—I had left them on top of the car and must've driven away with them still on the roof with the receipt inside! I zoomed back to the mall and was looking frantically through the parking lot, in the ditches and went to lost and found in the mall. Nothing.

Made my way to Winners, and lo and behold they were brought back by an older gentleman! You left your business card inside and I wanted to contact you to personally thank you, but when I got home it was nowhere to be found in the bag. What you don't realize is, that was my birthday present I bought for myself with my birthday money, and it was my birthday. Again, THANK YOU!

The power of laughter

Posted By on Fri, Sep 20, 2019 at 8:43 AM

Just another Tuesday evening, laughing with a friend on the #1. We probably looked like fools. But still, some of you accepted the memes we airdropped, and the laughter grew from just us two, to a community of passengers on transit as a whole. Some of you even airdropped memes back. We were all strangers, still are, but in that moment I think we all felt the strength of our community, coming together, to laugh at funny photos.

Very considerate bus driver!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2019 at 1:42 PM

You were driving us on the route #7 down Robie Street towards downtown at around 10:30 Sunday night, and you stopped at the bus stop in front of the Esso at Young and Robie. You then got up and walked towards the back of the bus, and politely woke up the guy to let him know that the grocery store he was looking for was just down the street! Our world needs more of you, thank you!

Lots of love for the strong assistance and social workers

Posted By on Wed, Aug 28, 2019 at 1:40 PM

Remember the platforms you have,
Raise your voices,
And do what you do best.
Keep on continuing your wonderful work within the community.
You don't just make a difference,
You are the difference.
Some people just need to pay attention more closely and listen because you are the change that the city's council, provincial and federal government needs. They need to take a leaf from your book.

Missed queernection

Posted By on Thu, Aug 1, 2019 at 10:55 AM

You are the adorable person who sat across from me on the bus and then across from me at the Dyke and Trans March. Were we making eye contact? I genuinely can’t tell! My vision is very bad! Either way to you and anyone else who was there, thank goodness for you and your fabulous queer selves. Thank you for creating that community space and for giving me the opportunity to unapologetically dream and chant and ogle. I hope you went home dreaming of a marvelous future and the ways you’ll fight for it. Don’t lose any of that hope or that bitterness. And if you see me again, please say hi!

Thank you for the boost!

Posted By on Wed, Jun 19, 2019 at 10:57 AM

To the shark-suited guitar-playing guy and his amazing entourage on Inglis Street on Bluenose marathon Sunday: thank you! Your singing and dancing gave me a well-needed boost to climb that hill during the marathon. It cheered me up for several kilometres and I still smile just thinking about it! You guys rock!

Wonder Woman

Posted By on Tue, Dec 4, 2018 at 4:19 PM

To the bus driver who was dressed as Wonder Woman on Halloween, you're the hero Gotham needs. You're a goddess. You're also the best driver in the city, bus or no bus. Keep on being awesome! —A-bus ride smoother than an invisible jet

Keep it up—now on to Stage II

Posted By on Tue, Feb 28, 2017 at 12:18 PM

Government should do its best to live within its means.

Hopefully now those in a position of authority will also make a determined effort to reform MLA pensions.  Since the chief criteria is affordability, and since the MLA pension plan would be considered by most Nova Scotianers to be unaffordable,  it is time to revisit this issue.  We now know that objective third party panels reviewing compensation issues in the public sector are no longer seen as necessary or legitimate so the work done by that previous panel can now be placed aside.

If MLAs were treated like ordinary public sector workers on their pensions it could result in a saving of millions which could be used to help provide funding for additional supports for disabled children in the educational system.  As a number of the senior people in the Government already have another public sector pension from other jobs that they have done, it should cause minimum economic distress. —Keep up the work guys

Birthday open mic singer

Posted on Thu, Jul 23, 2015 at 4:00 AM

It was your birthday. I saw you step up to sing at an open mic on Argyle Street on Tuesday. When you started singing, you silenced the room full of rowdies and drunk musicians. Your soft voice and presence floored me and everyone else in the room. I don't know if you sing professionally, but you made a room full of fans that night and kicked off at least one crush. —NumberOneFan
