  • Racist Bus Driver

    Why is this racist bus driver still employed? If we knew who the fucker was, I think we should video tape 10 young black males with student bus passes and but no student ID get on the bus wearing a burka. When he freaks out and tells them they are not allowed on the bus with their head and face covered, take them off. I figure that should send him over the edge. ---disgusted
  • Filter Coffee!!! Pfft!

    Coffee. Ok, you got me started. I love coffee. No, I LOVE coffee. I will go out of my way to find good coffee. Then I come to North America. What is it with filtered coffee here? This is a number one coffee crime back home! Now, don't get me wrong, there are some great coffee houses in Halifax, but they seem few and far between; outweighed in presence to those seemingly-green, high-priced, low-quality, burn-out-the-competition, corporate competition.

    Dear Customers, Just because I am a) cute, and/or b) nice to you does not mean I want to jump you. I am paid to be nice to you, to deliver your delicious mocha's to you. Im flattered by your crush however you are taking it too far by finding out my last name, and facebooking me.

  • Lift Up That Tiny Luggage Already

    Yes, you already know who you are. You're one of those people with a little 10 pound overnight case on two wheels with a towing handle, struggling through doors, up escalators and taking up extra space in elevators at rush hour. My laptop bag weighs twice as much as your puny accessory does, so pick the damned thing up.
  • The inferno in my kitchen

    Fuck you, oven. When I set you to 325, I mean 325, not 450. You burn everything and set off my overly sensitive smoke detector. Its getting irritating having to mess around with cooking/baking times and temperatures because for you, its charcoal or bust. ---hates cooking at home

  • Free speech first

    Hate speech is not “somebody disagrees with me, therefore my discomfort with ideological conflict justifies aggressively depriving that person of her or his Charter rights.”

  • Metro Transit idle on idling

    up to three minutes to inflate, HRM’s own website says it’s only “about one minute.” Idling buses pollute our air and waste our tax dollars.

  • Judging Brindi

    Francesca Rogier seems to see herself as some kind of martyr for animal rights, but really she is just, plain and simple, an irresponsible pet owner.
  • Letters
  • Brindi should die

    I believe that Brindi should be euthanized. Rogier is tying up our legal system.

  • Poor Brindi

    I feel sorry that she was adopted by someone as irresponsible as Francesca.
