Best Councillor

Dawn Sloane

No one could ever accuse four-time winner Dawn Sloane of lacking in the enthusiasm department. “I wake up happy every day knowing I get to do this job,” she says. Celebrating the defeat of the Midtown development---Sloane was the only councillor who voted against it---she says that after travelling to New York, Toronto, London and Dublin, she saw how good-quality modern buildings can happily co-exist with heritage buildings. If only council was as compatible. Sloane says opposing all of council can make you feel like a “lonely little petunia in the onion patch.” District 12, Halifax Downtown, 490-4752

1st runner-up Sheila Fougere, District 14, Connaught-Quinpool, 490-4087

2nd runner-up Sue Uteck, District 13, Northwest Arm-South End, 425-1724

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
