Re: “The Halifax convention centre is dead in the water

I'm sorry that Halifax gets a giant crater in the city centre, but thank goodness this thing failed. I've never seen such flawed economics, nor such a poor deal for the citizen in my entire life.

Re: “Proposed Quinpool development may create traffic problems with drive-thru

These comments are so silly. It's just a concept used by the developer to sell the space. Every developer envisions a cafe in proposed developments.
I agree with Calvin, we shouldn't have any parking lots of Quinpool. The parking lots don't make it a destination, the shops and services do.

Re: “Transit opportunity

Eliminating all downtown routes but the #1 would be greatly beneficial to this city. Buses shouldn't have to follow a schedule - they should just be frequent service.
Also, I think when it comes from Dartmouth, it should head south on Gottingen rather than Barrington.

Re: “CITY MAIL appears over the weekend: But what is it?

I'm totally on carolined's side. Stop all the hate. We need to support creative ideas like this. Why do we have to rip apart something that causes no harm to you. Let's test it out. I'll gladly send carolined a picture via CITY MAIL.

Re: “Coast exclusive: interview with Louis Reznick

Just a factual error,
Louis Lawen is not the [developer of the Trillium building on Spring Garden Road] as stated in this article. WM Fares is the developer of the Trillium, Lawen is the developer of the building at Hollis and Morris, the old Victoria Suites Apartments.

Re: “Alteregos Cafe

This place is an institution. It's a hub. It's your local. It's hard not to like this place when it feels like home. Alteregos is the most valuable outlet on Gottingen Street. Without this lively communal meeting place, Gottingen would need much more help.
Please support your local businesses, and we'll have an even stronger community.
