Re: “Cloudy sales for Solar City

It's simply a loan program and it makes no sense at all for anyone to participate, as far as I can see, and my suspicion is that the system price is pretty heavily inflated over what a private contract price would be. If I could revisit my decision I would not have done the $8000 Solar City program installation and would have gone with a couple of heat pumps instead. A very well hyped program but sort of pointless and expensive when you look at it closely.

Re: “Council choo-choo-chooses not to fund downtown “road train”

My band needs new T-shirts. We play to tourists on the waterfront during the summer. Give me some taxpayer's money for new shirts. It's really no different. Good for Sam Austin for being so very clear in stating how he reached his ethically correct decision.

Re: “The Atlantic Film Festival is FIN it to win it

This has got to be one of the more ridiculously pointless renaming things I've ever seen. It's taken me a week to connect FIN with the film festival. What the heck were they smoking to come up with this>

Re: “Hells Angels resurgence in Halifax not something to celebrate

Even though I'm a middle class, middle aged white guy... the "dad" stereotype referenced in this article, I'm no supporter or sympathizer with 1% motorcycle groups and I surely don't subscribe to the ridiculous notion that we'll be better off with the Hell's Angels setting up a chapter in the area. I never had the impression that biker gang sympathizers and supporters were referring to black men when they talk of the thugs and wannabe petty criminals that need to be controlled. To the contrary I always had the impression they're referring to the Melvin and Marriot types; e.g. the white trash criminal masterminds. Maybe I'm misinformed or naive but this is how I always understood it from following the social media comment feeds.
