Re: “The Halifax development roundtable

Experts? Is this suppose to be a joke? It's like The Coast doesn't even try to seem like a credible source.

Re: “Council report recommends selling Khyber as “community interest”

Honest question, can someone please explain to me why the Khyber Arts Society requires that building no matter what the cost is to themselves or taxpayers. Why can they not permanently locate to a different space? I know they have a long history there but is that the only reason?

Re: “Substantial design changes planned for Nova Centre

Dear Coast

The Nova Center is getting built. You lost. Move on.

It's time you found a new dubious conspiracy to endlessly beat to death.

Re: “Convention centre video report

Just to get your facts straight. This development approval predates HRMbD so it does not fall under that set of regulations. Your video and its claim of height and other HRMbD rules being broken is a bit of a "red herring". Your pole with the 85% result was done by the "save the view, heritage trust" group so we all know that's garbage. Another fact that The Coast always fail to report is all or almost all Major Canadian city convention centers are partially or in whole publicly funded Like the Ottawa or Vancouver centers. They are a revenue generator for a city. They bring outside money into the local economy. It really is an easy concept to grasp.
Just to help you out and save you some money, The Roy development approval also predates HRMbD so don't bother making a second video full of bogus claims. No need for thanks.

Re: “Urban Outfitters is NOT coming to Barrington Street

Priceless. This coming from The Coast and Tim Bousquet. The weekly publication that on a fairly regular basis has to redact articles and post public apologies. What a hypocrite.

Re: “In May, a white SUV hit a bicyclist and drove away

Wow! Just wow. Between this article and the one Tim posted a week later this is verging on libel and defamation. This goes way too far.

Re: “This week at city council

Well Tim I am no crack reporter like yourself but a quick review of his pre-election tweets finds you offering advice on a few occasions. Let's also not forget your overwhelmingly negative coverage of Sue Uteck and your gushing praise of Waye in your articles during the election campaign. What better help can a "reporter" offer than that?
