Best Effort To Improve Halifax

Gold Winner Bike lanes

Silver Winner Homes Not Hondas

Bronze Winner The Big Lift

Second-place goes to the courageous-yet-futile efforts of the Homes Not Hondas protestors to stop car czar Rob Steele from bulldozing a dozen properties in the north end. A special bronze-medal shout-out to The Big Lift, which will finally wrap up this winter after 18 months of making us wonder whether the bridge was closed or not.
