Re: “Local Xpress spins-off into HalifaxToday

It should have a name that is EASY to spell...the two"a's" in Taavel will cause a problem and then what is the correct pronunciation so that we can communicate. I am for simple street names the indicate where they are in the city.

Re: “Hendsbee blames media for ruining his pension proposal

I spoke with David Hendsbee last year concerning a letter of support to have signs put up in the Waverly area intoducing the home of Myles Goodwyn from April Wine.
This has been long over looked.
The Deputy Mayor Mat Whitman took the time and forfilled my request.
Steven Streatch confirmed this would happen this summer, he has not called Civic addressing as of yet even with many calls to remind him, nor did I ever receive the promised letter from Hendsbee.
Who do they represent? Who do they work for? Who's tax dollars pays them? I am still waiting for Hendsbee's promised letter. He can keep it!!!

Re: “Halifax will try to “wow” Amazon

My sense is that Amazon wants a very large centre like Toronto, but, I doubt if the American government will let this opportunity go to anyone but another American city. When you mentioned the mayors 'wow factor', all I could think of was how much would the Province and HRM spend for this longshot. Reminds me of the visions the politicians were having about the Commonwealth Games, spending a lot of public money for nothing. I think you should republish your 'world class city' article, as I suspect we'll start hearing this from the politicians again.

Re: “Hendsbee blames media for ruining his pension proposal

So, if I have this right, David Hendsbee is upset that the media wrote about his pension regrets instead of trying to sneak it through council without his constituents knowing about his plan to make us pay for it. It ruined his weekend, so sad. Hope he's not planning to run for councillor because now everyone knows what he's like.

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

Really? We have had nothing in Lawrencetown during your sad tenure yet you want to put your pension on our back? No. I have to buy back mine. What makes you so special? Disgraceful!

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

Seriously? As a former Councillor I am nothing short of horrified by this. This is a man who after 20 years of reading reports, making decisions on behalf of thousands of people, says he didn't have enough information over the those 20 years to decide on whether or not he should join the pension plan! Shame on you Dave Hendsbee. You have left yet another blight on all who seek public service.

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

After working myself and raising two children my husband and I do not have any pensions except what we managed to put in rsp last 10 years. No pension plans for us. Our tax dollars pay his salary which is much larger than mine. Why should taxpayers pay for his stupidity. U snooze u lose. This is an example of why many people don't trust government.

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

OMG... yet another entitled politician wanting something for nothing..
Seems he was lucky enough to have extra money to invest into RRSP tax deferring and chose that over the government pension plan..
To decide now he wants in but doesn't want to pay for its benefits is more than rediculous.
It's another insult and slap to all hard working retirees with neither RPP's or RRSP's, let alone savings and resources..
Sad... really sad

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

Just no.... you opted out. Don't make us pay for something you didn't want to do in the first place. It's hard enough living with the wages us tax payers have and having to pay so much for rent, power, food, and anything else a family needs now you want us to pay even more so you can have a fucking pension?? GFYS!!!!!!!

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

There are lots of HRM employees who lost years of pension time do to a variety of reasons. Would a deal be just for councilors for all HRM employees. I don't think so , sorry David, you had a choice and you made it . Either buy back your time on your own or liven on your investments . I am sure as an intelligent individual you planned for retirement.

Not one cent. Taxpayers will not stand for it. His poor foresight, his problem.

Re: “David Hendsbee wants HRM to cover his pension regrets

Perhaps he can try living off the OAS and CPP that many seniors have to subsist on. Not everyone was able to put money away in a "personal savings plan" over 20 or 30 years. Sorry, but I have no sympathy here.
