Re: “People are losing it over Halifax Transit’s new giant-ass bus tickets

I'm going on a limb here and assume - based on reading this article - that there is a future planned increase if they're installing machines to accept bills rather than coins.
$5 bill size. Fair might be $5 in the near future possibly?

That is an unspeakably dumb upgrade.

E-tickets ought to be the priority, not the second phase.

Re: “People are losing it over Halifax Transit’s new giant-ass bus tickets

Halifax Transit has NOT used orange tickets in over 3 years. Also, I have seen many examples of ticket and transit forgery over the years. Most people are honest and kind but as the saying goes, " a few bad apples spoil the bunch". Lastly, people were upset when the fleet started announcing each stop last year. Guess they have moved on !?It is time that people accept the world does NOT work exactly as they want ot to. Embrace these changes as there are bigger things to worry about.

Re: “Updated: Neo-nazi art thief publishing memoir

What a loser this guy is. He stole from shopkeepers, universities, and provincial buildings; all easy targets with little to NO security and he brags about himself like hes Oceans Eleven.

Re: “Updated: Neo-nazi art thief publishing memoir

Steal art and get more time than a pedophile???

Do an article on all the high risk pedophiles release into our communities after a few months to a year in prison, with full government protection.

No one cares about this guy, you are only feeding controversy. Expose something that matters, like the corrupt police force or how our government loves pedos.

Re: “Sober second thoughts on Halifax smoking ban

Of course the pigs wouldnt have time to enforce an actual law. Theyre too busy beating marginalized people.

Re: “Sober second thoughts on Halifax smoking ban

Get a grip people! Start banning cars and I will stop smoking in public! Your cars pollute our air more than my cigarette does. Also, I use medicinal marijuana and I will fight this as a human rights issue. Public means public. Open to all public. It would be different if I was doing something illegal, but I am not. Government needs to stop controlling us. Last time I looked, Canada was a free country. And don't worry about the cost of enforcing it, think of the legal costs as it goes all the way to the Supreme Court.

Re: “Sober second thoughts on Halifax smoking ban

There will be no evidence, said councillor Shawn Cleary. If we go ahead with this, we would have to logically extend it to cannabis and allow all smoking in all the public right-of-way because you cant have one without the other.

Can't tell the difference, by smell, if a cigarette or a joint is being smoked? Pathetic.

Re: “Sobeys pharmacist spied on, shared private medical records

Tell me this, where is Robyn Keddy's response? Do you know her WHOLE entire life story? If this was true, and how serious it would be then why do peoples voices telling you its true mean its actually true? Just a tip, VIDEO CAMERAS TELL THE TRUTH.

Re: “Sober second thoughts on Halifax smoking ban

Davan, I think the issue isn't that they couldn't prove one substance was another, but rather that it would be extremely difficult to prove when someone complains and an officer responds, arriving later, when the burning substance in question is already finished and tossed in the appropriate receptacle.

Re: “Sober second thoughts on Halifax smoking ban

I agree that enforcement would have been a nightmare. We have had Smoke Free Places provincial legislation for years now, since the NDP brought it in. I have called and complained numerous times and nobody wanted to enforce it. Not the police, the bylaw officers nor health and wellness personnel. The fact remains that smokers refuse to manage themselves and their habit/addiction. I certainly wouldn't care if they smoked. It is the use of bus shelters and other spaces where smokers force it on all of us, whether we want it or not. I am asthmatic yet I am forced to breathe clouds of smoke walking down the sidewalks. I chose not to shop on SGR for that very reason. As consumers, we can choose where we shop. Some of us choose not to shop in areas where smoking is forced upon us. Downtown streets are perfect examples.

Re: “Sober second thoughts on Halifax smoking ban

The city needs to focus on more important things than public tobacco or vaping use.
To use the excuse proving it may be cannabis is extremely weak.
There are many tests that can differentiate between the two.

Re: “Smiling Goat owner suing former employees

As has already been posted. Check their previous UK history. He still owes my wife thousands in unpaid wages.

Re: “Smiling Goat owner suing former employees

Has lots of money to sue these low-wage earners - but chose not to pay them. POS.

Re: “Nova Scotia government closing the book on school boards

Where can I get a copy of the actual report?

Re: “Awkward! National school board conference comes to Nova Scotia

Hi Jacob,
You wrote that the dissolution of the schoolboards was originally made in the Glaze report. This isn't really true. This has been a stated part of the AIMS education agenda for years. Avis Glaze was brought in to add legitimacy to a plan that was very much cooked up here in NS.

Re: “Smiling Goat owner suing former employees

Respectfully, Kit and his Wife destroyed their own reputations before they ever stepped on Canadian soil. There's a reason they came here from the UK. Check their histories before you damn the Baristas, and you'll see a pattern.....

Re: “Smiling Goat owner suing former employees

Something stinks from both the owner and former employees who maligned him then just "happen"to open in one of the locations he was forced to close!
