Re: “Name the ferry!

who are YOU to decide if two names are similar? That sounds like VETTING! ; )

My vote:

Memorial Highway

Why the hell do we turn highways into memorials? Sounds like a diss.

**jipugtug is actually pretty cool.

Re: “Special treatment for Nova Centre mocks HRM By Design

Woo-woo or not, small number of participants or not, the changes I've heard that came from those consultations make sense to me. So if the few who care and could make it did the woo-woo and made it a lot better, great.

I think it's worth the thousands shelled out just for the parking entrance/exit not to be on beer street, but on a hill no one likes to climb. That building will be there for 80 years.

Tim I like your reporting, I fully respect your view of the woo-woo, though I may not share it. But I feel that you're prejudice against it (as shown in your choice of words) may have precluded a rational inquiry. Take a look at if the process helped - report to your readers what changes are proposed as a result of the consultations, offer your opinion, state who is paying, and let us decide with good information whether it was worth the price tag for ourselves.

Widening Bayers road will cost half a billion dollars. Yup. Smart. Brunello all over again.

Re: “Staff recommends District Boundary Scenario 1, with revisions

It costs a lot to service the burbs and rural areas. The majority of tax profits after direct expenses to service the lot come from our downtowns, which will have a decreasing voice. Some stats from 5 year plan shows that development outside downtown is 11% above plan, and development in the core is 38% below plan.

Not only is the balance of political power already slowly draining our ability to invest in the community, but it's going to get worse. We could hope that all councillors will see benefits of a strong downtown supporting their communities, but it's their constituents who elect them, and unfortunately they tend to see downtown as the the place with everything, rather than the place that provides everything.

Maybe the answer is councillors at large. I found the system (with 10 at large councillors + Mayor) in Vancouver much more responsive and effective, and even in a much larger city with many fewer councillors, I would get a response to my emails, which I seldom do here.

Re: “Good-bye to the Brewery Market

I take $80 bucks the weeks I go, and spend it all one time in six. The other five, I give up before I'm done. The farmers are going to get more of my money in the new location, and that's good for both of us. As for the childless, latte sipping socializers, I feel for your loss.
