Thank you, "Susan in Halifax," for finding and reporting my credit card lost! You saved me from quite the hassle! I hope some good karma comes your way! —WK

Thank you for the boost!

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!

Long Distance Love

Posted By on Tue, Jun 18, 2019 at 10:15 AM

After a few years away from Halifax, I've only grown to love it even more. I've talked about Halifax so positively and extensively that almost every single one of the friends I've made in Vancouver is dead-set on visiting. The Seaport Market, bike routes in Dartmouth, the Frog Pond, DeeDee's, Trident Coffee, the Hydrostone... People keep asking if I'll miss Vancouver, but how could I when I'm heading back to Halifax?

Cure for my landlocked blues...

Posted By on Tue, Apr 30, 2019 at 1:21 PM

Halifax is the best cure for my landlocked blues. Like many, I've moved west for work and made a good life. In a few weeks, though, I'll be back for a short visit. Point Pleasant Park, the Citadel, Spring Garden and the market are where I'll be first. The salt -inged air, friendly faces and fun is what I'll try to soak up most in My Nova Scotia Home.

CSA all the way

Every week, every single week, for the past four months (and counting!) you take time from what I can only assume is an incredibly busy farm life to come into the city. You hand-deliver not only your organic produce, but also your eggs, fruit and pasture-raised meats to my community. Everything is grown with such love—I swear I can taste it in every bite. My family and I wait for our box of goodies to roll in from Port Williams to Bedford. Opening our share of vegetables every week is beyond exciting. Thank you for taking such good care of the land you grow on, the soil you nurture and the families you feed.

Home sweet home

Posted By on Tue, Apr 9, 2019 at 11:19 AM

Really good ice cream! Visible soil! Cool events! The Coast! Halifax, I missed you so much. No matter how many new buildings have popped up, how many new craters have appeared in the ground, and how many people have up and left for Toronto, you are still the place for me. I am so happy to be home again, and not just because it means leaving a particularly dull neighbouring province.

Concrete jungle

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2019 at 12:40 PM

Thank you to the workers at Purdy's Wharf who, at 3am, had to deal with me stepping in their wet cement. I had had a long night and apparently became careless and disoriented in your work zone. You were so forgiving and friendly—and one of you sweethearts even cleaned off my sneakers with a sponge. Total angels! Thank you!

To the fine people of this city: I just want to say thanks to you for being so accepting of transgender people. Since I've started my transition, everyone I talk to about it has been fantastic. I've felt so supported, even by strangers. I currently still present male on a daily basis and nobody second guesses me when I tell them I'm trans, which I really appreciate. Probably the only bad experience I've had was when two gay males told me I was ruining my body.

Thank you for the thanks! My niece and I were having a day out and stumbled across the Canon. She was so stoked (and so I am I honestly) to see your thanks online! You made a 13-year-old feel like a superstar. It was the best teachable moment I can recall in a while!
Thank you!

To Mister Fix-it

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2018 at 12:07 PM

My friend and I were in a tight spot when the footrest on her wheelchair broke, making it unsafe for us to move and try to take the city bus home. We tried fixing it. We called various cabs with no luck. We were at the end of our rope when you came along. Within a minute, you were able to snap on the footrest while I held up her legs, and taking only a hug in payment, you left and we got home safe. We can't possibly thank you enough and we'll always remember you as the superhero the Mister Fix-it who came to our aid!

Wave of Emotion

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2018 at 4:20 PM

My own damn fault: I wore my prescription sunglasses into the surf on Natal Day Monday at Rainbow Haven. I got caught by a wave and the glasses were torn from my face. My girlfriend and I looked for the rest of the day, trying to spot them on the beach or in the water. Without any expectation, I alerted the lifeguard and gave her my cell number.

You found them—black prescription Oakleys with a purple stripe —and took them to her. She texted me just as I was leaving the beach. Shock and delight!

Thank you so much for that. You were my Natal Day miracle.
