Re: “The last straw

This is perhaps the most perfectly written Love the Way We Bitch in the history of the column.

Also, I am 100% on board with No More's reaction. Latte in the face is the perfect expression for the kind of frustration she felt here. First: it does no actual physical harm, just causes a big mess and some humiliation... so it's retaliation without escalation, you could say. Second, the sacrifice of such a delicious drink really demonstrates the egregiousness of the offence. People don't just toss a $7 beverage over nothing.

Re: “Here's what the renovated Khyber might look like

This model seems to have worked before... see the Conservatory and Muslim Academy on Chebucto, former city surplus buildings. The question is will staff and council find it in themselves to trust an "arts" group to do this. I really hope they can see the possibilities here, and what a boon this would be for downtown and the city if it succeeds.

Re: “Snow clearing in Halifax is a disaster

"Find a street bum prepared to do honest labour and pay him off in petty cash, T!m's gift cards, or fortifed wine."

Ivan, you are an asshole. Congratulations on taking your otherwise reasonable point and flushing it down the toilet.

Re: “Why does Barrington Street remain barren?

Spot on. Why won't the market adjust itself to fill vacancies? I would show up to hear our downtown planners and developers answer this question. Maybe the next Kate Carmichael Lecture should address this...

Re: “Shock and sadness from St. Pat’s ruling

Thanks to a bureaucracy with no vision, who don't even seem to be aware of (much less follow) their own policies, we as a city are now in a legal bind that requires us to sell this school to a private developer, when three of the strongest community organizations in north end Halifax have been working diligently all along to put it to better use? This is beyond disappointing. Halifax staff and council should be ashamed. What a missed opportunity.

Re: “Common problems

I too wonder why that fountain has a fence around it. So much security in the centre, so much danger on the outside!

Re: “March Madness Day 12: OpenFile vs. Al Jazeera & Live at 5 vs. Coffee News

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Upworthy beat ProPublica? Shouldn't this be one of those things where people look at the choice and then actually lie and pick ProPublica even though they never read it, but they just know in their hearts that its form of non-corporate, public interest, investigative journalism is actually amazing, especially when sidled up beside a click-bait aggregator like Upworthy? Come on! That broke my heart.
