April brings Godzilla, traffic delays 

It always was the cruelest month.

West end Halifax commuters found themselves at the receiving end of what seems like a bad April Fool's prank: the first day of a four-month-long repair work project on the Quinpool Road CN Rail bridge.


With traffic backing up on Herring Cove Road and Chebucto Road, this morning's rush hour on the Armdale Roundabout was no joke. The irony was not lost on commuters, who took to Twitter to voice their thoughts.


Meanwhile, another group of Haligonians spent April Fool's Day on their feet at the Fight for $15 Fairness rally, which started at noon on Barrington Street.

The rally is a response to today's 55-cent increase in the minimum wage, making the rate for experienced workers $11.55 per hour. That raise is a far cry from the $15 per hour the Fairness fighters want to see.


With all this going on in Halifax, it is no wonder no one but this one lonely tweeter has noticed Godzilla rampaging through the streets. Drivers can only imagine how they will have to factor this into their evening commute.
