Re: “City hall lawyers say smoking ban needs to include tobacco

What a disgusting mess, council is doubling down. To all you councillors- this is not what THE PEOPLE want, despite the lobbying from health groups. This is such a hot button issue that you can expect to be replaced come next election.

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: “Oh Can't - ah- duh

how about you realize that giving the general working population a day off is important, and instead plan ahead by ONE SINGLE DAY. WOW.

Re: “To the panhandler outside the Halifax ferry station

I happened to be down there (I believe) on the same day doing some work and got asked by (whom I suspect) is the same fellow. He doesn't remember, but I caught him stashing possessions under my back deck in the North end a few months ago and he got borderline aggressive on that occasion. I'm guessing from the vibes he has some untreated mental health issues, so try not to take it personally OB. Personally, though, I'm wary of this fellow because he seems a bit unpredictable.

Re: “Glut of office space disastrous for Halifax Convention Centre financials

Extremely successful, except in the sense it loses money each and every year to the tune of 18 million dollars in 10 years.

If it were my business venture, I wouldn't consider that success.

Re: “Halifax police will keep using street checks

@JohnvG, I respect that position but I think you have a different perspective as an older and generally respectable looking white man. As a young person who doesn't always "look" respectable (aka completely average), the handful of times I've been stopped for something like this made me feel targeted, and the imbalance of power between police and citizen makes me feel as though I can't say no. Police are carrying weapons that are capable of killing, and carry the trust of the justice system to use them with a high likelihood of no consequences. I know that I have the right to not answer questions, but refusal is met with additional suspicion and sometimes aggression instead of understanding. As a citizen it is none of the state's business where I am going or what I am doing so long as I have not committed a crime and it is wrong for police to be nosing into a citizens business without evidence of a crime. Every encounter with police makes me feel powerless and a little violated (not trying to be dramatic, but I don't have a better word).
