Re: “HRM Planner raised concerns about Ingramport connector road

Residents gave the provincial government every opportunity to exercise common sense on the connector road issue but instead the government decided to harm homes and properties unnecessarily, ignored community input, broke its own freedom of information law, undercut HRM's regional development strategy, and ultimately announced that it is going to build the connector on the route it picked years ago despite the community's opposition to it. Given the government's inappropriate behaviour, we were left with no choice but to highlight what the government was doing in the hope that it would be shamed into serving citizens instead of working against them.

This case is no longer just about this particular connector road - it is about defending basic democratic principles: The government shouldn't harm homes and properties when it has other options. The government shouldn't break its own freedom of information law. The government shouldn't say it is considering multiple routes when all the evidence suggests it has already made up its mind. The government should have a development plan and stick to it. The government should serve citizens, not ignore them.
