Re: “Halifax‚Äôs bike network dream in jeopardy

Well, the next person killed or injured as a result of the City's inaction and indifference to cyclists will rest solely on the heads of Council. They should be forced to explain to the persons loved ones why they felt the life of that person was not important.

Re: “Review committee finds flaws with Nova Scotia's minimum wage formula

That's if you even have a job in the New Year. Scandalous. Uneducated and inexperienced.

Re: “Police continue arresting labour activists

Should the headline not be reflective of the story?

Labour activists continue to knowingly break the law

Or..

Police continue to do their job

Or...

Postal workers continue to hold the public's mail hostage

I think those would be far more reflective of the position in which postal workers have put themselves.

Re: “WE Day Atlantic not happening

I sure hope WE Day is saving the world and creating awesome kids growing up into awesome adults. Because it sure ruins my day every year. I'm glad it won't be happening this year.

Re: “Review committee finds flaws with Nova Scotia's minimum wage formula

If it were only so easy, eh? I'll bet that better infrastructure and solid economic investments will help boost minimum wage. Oh wait, we don't want economic growth. Okay, back to begging at the Federal Transfer Payments Table...

Re: “City hall to pay for side guards on garbage trucks

In light of yet another fiscal surplus and in the name of proactive lifesaving decency, I say well done, Halifax.

Re: “City hall to pay for side guards on garbage trucks

So... Yay? Boo? I don't see where we are to think what. We're happy that little old ladies won't be killed anymore? We are pissed off because we're spending taxpayer money on not killing little old ladies? We're not allowed to like Russell Walker? Ohdearsweetjesus... someone please tell me!

Re: “Raymond Taavel to be memorialized with city park

If only all the others who work and worked in social justice were recognized as well. Even the gay community fails to do that.

Note that disliking my comment is a prime example of that failure.

Re: “Raymond Taavel to be memorialized with city park

Yeah, why bother putting something nice up on Gottingen when we can have more gentrified condos and white hipster shops instead?

Re: “Halifax tackles funding options for $200-million CFL stadium

I'm not against a CFL team coming to Hfx, just against public money being dumped into it. Everyone needs to get this insane idea of a $200Mil stadium out of their heads. Look at the success of the Montreal Impact (different kind of football) and the Saputo Stadium. I've been to many sold out soccer matches there. Original capacity of 13,000, since renovated now hold 20,000. Total combined cost approx. $40mil... and this is for successful team in a much bigger market than Hfx. It's called baby steps... much like what the HFX Wanderers FC are doing. Small 7,500 seat pop-up, expand as needed. You don't succeed by making your first attempt being the moon. Again I would love to see the success of a team in the area... I just get frustrated when I hear people talking such craziness and amounts of money for buying into a league that is suffering desperately. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saputo_Stadium

Re: “Season ticket drive begins for Halifax's non-existent CFL team

Yes, a season tickets drive would be one of the ways that they would raise capital.

Re: “WE Day Atlantic not happening

Alrighty... Gord Downie did not perform last year, due to his death on October 17, 2017.

In regards to WE day being cancelled, it is unfortunate that 8000+ youth and educators do not get to sit through a day packed with corporate sponsors and a few feel good stories.

Re: “WE Day Atlantic not happening

Okay... I'd guess the public criticism of its business practices was not the reason why it's not happening here this year; given it's still going strong elsewhere cements that assumption.

Why it's not happening is the real story... So, why?

Re: “Halifax tackles funding options for $200-million CFL stadium

Or we could spend the money on things we actually need like a new hospital or our shorty roads

Re: “No clear answers on stadium finances

One thing that has now become clear is that Halifax is getting a monorail. One thing that is not clear is the reason why we are attempting to show up Shelbyville. And Mike, that's a paddlin'.

Greg, I'm not telling you a thing about me. Having a different opinion than someone is not "hostile". Don't throw around words you don't understand.
