Re: “Keep the Common skating oval

I am a transplanted Haligonian currently working outside the province. I was home over the holidays and fell in love with the oval and the collective experience it bought about. It was winter in slushy Halifax! But we, the people, were skating on the commons. I don't mean to oversell it but it was pretty great. That is, after all, what the commons ought to be for. For everyone. And I have to say, my experience skating over the holidays was part in parcel of my decision to get the heck of dodge and come back home. That said, I heard the almost instant clamourings to keep the oval and had mixed feelings. I worried about the environmental costs; whether our city councillors would be able to manage a permenant fixture in an economically efficient way; and, finally, whether this was all maybe just a bit of a, admittedly beautiful, fad? The author of this editorial, however, presents persuasive arguments in favour of keeping the oval. So ah heck - why be a wet blanket? Yes to the oval!
