A big ol’ pile of dirt is blocking a footpath on the Halifax Common, forcing pedestrians to walk around it, or face the slightly inclined consequences. 

A big ol’ pile of dirt is blocking a footpath on the Halifax Common, forcing pedestrians to walk around it, or face the slightly inclined consequences.


Remarks: Who would put a dirt pile in such an awkward place? From whence did it come? Is the ground, tired of being trod upon, fighting back and (literally) staging an uprising? Well…no. According to Brinson, the dirt was left on the Common by city workers, to be used whenever they need to “repair a hole or rut”—and in the meantime, we get a dirt pile. Uh...isn’t a big mound of dirt just as bad as a hole? I mean, sure, we’ve got hole-and-rut related peace of mind...but at what cost?


Who's Responsible?: Donna Brinson with HRM Real Property and Operations. 490-4580.
