Re: “UPDATED: Province may sell old Spring Garden library to private developers

Any development of this site will have to deal with 4000+ human remains buried there, a legacy of the Poor House. Think that is far-fetched? Ask the folks across the street at St. David's.
The land should be used for the public good -- municipal museum (we don't have one), contemporary art gallery, concert hall. Halifax has a dearth of public arts infrastructure. Time for that to change.

Re: “Gentrification in the “new” north end

I disagree that "Gentrification simply happens naturally in urban environments." It is the result of a set of decisions (policies, development, etc) that have unintended consequences. I also strongly believe that community is all about context. The North End of Halifax (however you define that) has always been a mixed community. And if you want a serious historical analysis of one (small but significant) portion of the North End and the unintended consequences of development -- even planned development -- read Suzanne Morton's Ideal Surroundings.
