Re: “This Halifax/Dartmouth branding war will destroy us all

Jacob, a bit of misinformation being spread on your part. I am not aware of anyone blaming Waye Mason for the signage debacle, but will concede his arrogant attitude and misrepresentation of the facts made him quite unpopular and he has been called out on many of the erroneous statements he made. Your references to the 'extremist cells' is a bit over the top Just mostly citizens of Dartmouth venting their frustration at the lack of sensitivity of the HRM leadership and re-branding of Dartmouth to Halifax process. Dartmouth signage has been changed, 'Dartmouth' removed from some signs, and 'Halifax' added. For instance, since when did Halifax become the City of Lakes. Well 2 new signs in Dartmouth's Burnside Industrial Park now say 'Halifax' City of Lakes. Now, if you are from Dartmouth you might feel your identity is threatened with this type of signage. These two signs are just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.

There are many issues and concerns happening world-wide that have more serious consequences than the re-branding in HRM issue, but it would be a mistake to assume those issues are not important to those who are also expressing and venting their frustration to what appears to be the Dartmouth name change and apparent loss of Dartmouth's identity. Kudos to First Nations communities for their efforts and successes in re-vitalizing their respective identities/culture which were stolen from them. We could learn much from them.
