Still smoking? 

This is becoming a habit. The Coast should stop printing cigarette ads and run a printed retraction explaining why The Coast would print them in the first place.

To the editor,

I read Geoffrey Allen's letter about your decision to print an advertisement for cigarettes. The reader expressed outrage at The Coast's willingness to disregard Canadian law and moral responsibility and print a tobacco advertisement. I was further shocked to see the same full-page advertisement featured again in last week's paper. As a long-time reader, I expect not to see such an advertisement again, and a printed retraction explaining why The Coast would print it in the first place. ---Corey, Halifax

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
