Game on 

Halifax 2014 and the bid for the Common-wealth Games is a worthwhile cause, with tangible benefits like economic spin-off and infrastructure to help get your obese kids away from their computers and Cheetos. So why is it met with such resistance? If Halifax wants to be taken seriously as a major city, it needs to embrace events that do more than pack hotels for a weekend. For once I'd like to see my tax dollars go toward something where I can see results. I know the line at the soup kitchen isn't getting any shorter, and I'm confident we'll all be funding such programs until the sweet release of death. When the opportunity comes along to upgrade our fair city we should embrace it, and break this culture of complaining every time a new idea comes to light.
