Re: “Inside Canada‚Äôs foreclosure playground

Regarding the Pig Loop house that "sold" for $5,495. This was not an arms' length sale. Likely scenario: the lender foreclosed, paid what was owing to the municipality ($5,495), then sold the house on for $650,000, which was probably less than was owing on the property. The effective cost to the $5,495 purchaser (the lender) was $5,495 plus what was owing. Suggesting that someone purchased this property for $5,495 is misleading. Presumptions based on data taken from secondary sources, such as a brokerage's website, are likely not as sound as those based on information obtained directly from our land registry system.

Re: “Re: Panhandler bitches

Just because you haven't experienced it yourself doesn't mean it doesn't happen, OB.

There's a guy at work that clips his finger nails. That's when I dawn my safety goggles.

@ OB.

So you don't mind the panhandlers walking out in the middle of the road at Windsor Exchange, being a nuisance and a distraction?

Re: “Skunky skunk

Personally, I'd rather smell skunk than have noisy, stupid drunks live next door. It's legal now, OP, so there's sweet fuck all you can do about it. Same goes for ciggies. Maybe you and the wife need to have a puff or two of that skunk & chill.

Re: “Re: Panhandler bitches

I have two things to say here. One, while I agree that most don't follow you and harass you, I did have one exception. On Spring Garden Road in front of the Shoppers Drug Mart several years back, one of them, a black man (his color will be important to the story in a moment) gave me the usual request for spare change. I told him I had none to spare which was the truth, and I walked down to the bus stop. I heard his voice again behind me and he had followed me and started saying, "Why not? Because I'm black? You son of a...." etc. I was not aware that I had made any racial comment at all, in fact I'm sure I didn't in turning him down. Fortunately, my bus came at that moment and I avoided an argument by boarding.
Two, while I'm aware that some of them are "phony" as one of the other commenters said, I know of one who certainly wasn't. He went by the name of Pops and could be found on Spring Garden Road. He wasn't actually homeless, and even had a job--but he also had massive expenses for a medical condition that he had which MSI didn't cover. So he was forced to beg on the streets in order to make ends meet. Sadly, his medical problems won out in the end and he is gone now.

Re: “Re: Panhandler bitches

I agree with the post above. (Lobster Claw). I look to see if they are smoking. Most are. As for the growing numbers at intersection. That another bitch.

Re: “Slower traffic keep to the right

That's the problem with this Province, City. Need for speed mentality. The minimal seems to be 110. The norm is 120. I travel the 100 series highways. Police enforcement is non existent.
Doing 160 is dangerous. Again lack of police, why NOT...

Re: “Re: Panhandler bitches

I worked in downtown Halifax for 25 years and here's my conclusions of street bums: 1. Your contribution feeds their addictions, 2. Some bums are phony as a 6.5 dollar bill - always check footwear - if they're better than yours, keep walking and 3. I have been screamed/sworn at by such people so your experience isn't the only valid one. 4. Better to give your money to homeless shelters/soup kitchens where it will do the most good.

Re: “Slower traffic keep to the right

Anyone who floors it at 160 should have a serious meeting with a light pole.
