25 for 25: episode 2005

Lezlie Lowe on public bathrooms! Erica Butler on HRM's Regional Plan! Commonwealth Games! Stolen deer head sculptures! Bedford fast ferries!

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2018 at 11:15 AM


This week on the podcast, author (and former Coast columnist) Lezlie Lowe is here chatting about her new book, No Place To Go: How Public Toilets Fail Our Private Needs. (You can read Lezlie's 2005 cover feature on public bathrooms in Halifax right here.)

Lezlie also sticks around as we talk about the aborted fast ferry to Bedford, stolen deer head sculptures and HRM's failed Commonwealth Games bid. Plus, will 2005 see the resurrection of Halifax's infamous Halloween Mardis Gras? (Spoiler: No!)

Journalist Erica Butler is also in studio to dissect HRM's Regional Plan, its impact on the city's growth and whether any of this public consultation stuff is actually effective.
