Re: “Shaw Wilderness Park sets dangerous precedent for future land deals

Okay, so maybe Shaw development got a good deal, but what was the alternative? HRM could have bent the rules ( as they seem to do so often) and allowed the development. Instead they gave the developers some profit for surrendering their aspiration to develop. Frankly, as a person who lives on William's Lake, I much prefer to see a conservation park (named Shaw or whatever), than the mixed -use high-rise and home development Shaw applied for. I attended many meetings on this project, and will attend another one this Thursday. Conservation is expensive - check out any US city with a greenbelt, like Boulder, Colorado. BTW that parcel of land that is still for sale - you did not identify where it is? Are you sure it was part of the original development proposal?

Re: “Pork shoulder tacos

"Prepare your hand made pressed corn tortillas"?? You've got to be kidding. Requires masa harena , a specially processed corn meal and a press, and even then it is an art to make decent corn tortilla. You can buy corn tortillas at Sobey's and they work fine, and do not cost a fortune, and are gluten free (unlike the ones at Pete's Frootique). If more Haligonians purchased these, the supplier (in NB) might not go out of business!

Re: “Bearly's House of Blues & Ribs

FYI ACE Burgers moved out of Bearly's sometime between August and Oct 2015 - a big loss. The bar claims they kept the Ace burger chef but the lamb burger is no longer on the menu, among others, and the burgers no longer carry the ACE name - which BTW used locally sourced meats, and hormone free beef. Coast needs to update it's info on the food at Bearly's, which remains an awesome blue bar and a place to jive and blues dance, too.
