Re: “A small council protects elites' interests

what we need is a proper leader in this city. Kelley is not a leader, he is weak, impotent and just down right wishy washy. We need a mayor with balls who can whip the councilors in shape. One who is able to get council to look at the bigger picture and to make decisions for the betterment of the city, not just for the districts. A mayor that will prevent stupid cat bylaws from hi jacking council.

Kelly has been here to long and needs to go, please please please will someone with balls please step up and run this city

Re: “A roundabout for the Bedford Highway?

i live on kearney lake @dunbrack. ive looked at all the proposals and really like them all. i 100% agree with sk8ter. i moved here in Oct. i used to visit halifax alot before moving here, and never really spent time in this part of the city except to drive through on my way out of the city.

birch cove has SO much potential to be a cool little nabe. as already mentioned, there is no place for the people of this area to congregate and enjoy our surroundings. ive been for many walks down kearney lake to the basin, and everytime i walk down there, i imagine how great it would be to be able to walk down and enjoy the water. dreams of mine envision something like the seawall in vancouver, winding the whole way around the basin.

my preferrence is option 1. but op 1 doesnt take into account the little rink. however opt 2 does in incoropertate a little park in that area, so if they can save the park in option 1 then that has my full support, if not then opt 2 has my backing.

Re: “O, Canada!

if we were to start changing the anthem now - we would end up being in a 10 year process changing everything in the anthem to avoid offending someone. changing "all thy sons", "native land" - "whose native land are they referring to", "god - whose god? and isnt there seperation of church and state"

after 10 years we wouldnt be singing o canada at all it would be something completely different than what we have now. it would be akin to opening the constiution again.

i really do not think that canadians have the stomache to deal with something like this for years and years to only end up with an anthem that no one really likes. if you really want to deal a death blow to national unity, lets start talking abou changing the national anthem.

our government has much more pressing concerns - the environment, education, getting the cons out of power, than changing our anthem

Re: “O, Canada!

the national anthem is fine the way it is. it does not need to be changed. the national anthem is not something that needs to be politically correct.

Re: “

More low-cost homes

this is a FANTASTIC idea. it is done on other cities across the country, from toronto to vancouver. it is a great way to get affordable housing built, and to ensure that a neighbourhood has a miz if incomes.

and to the people who will surely come on here and say this is a bad idea, please give other reasons than "who will would pay hundred of thousands of dollars to live next to a welfare bum" or "what developer will want to do this" because these arguments are moot and do not contribute to the discussion.
