Re: “No sushi for you!

This seems to be a common problem here. Stores and restaurants would do anything to save a few costs, including limiting the number of condiments, charging extra for spices (it's one tiny chilli pepper, for God's sake!), and deciding when to stop serving you when it's all-you-can-eat.

Re: “Put the vicious ones to sleep already!

Here we go again with the pointless topic on how we should treat animals. It seems every time something like this is mentioned, we humans forget that we are animals ourselves. Just like how we abuse our own kind, we abuse those of other species because we feel threatened, angry, endangered, and we threat them like food because, frankly, they are food. That being said, the examples you've listed are specialized cases and there are laws and practises put in place to prevent such things from happening. But the majority of us in the Western world are dog lovers, cat lovers, and animal lovers. We treat animals with respect because we see them as our neighbours, friends, and family members. We don't treat them with respect when they become a nuisance, something as a means to gain money, or something that's just there for our survival. If you really want people to stop abusing animals, educate your children on the joys animals can bring, research on best practices when dealing with certain kinds of animals, and let other people who see animals as something else deal with them their own way.

Re: “Why isn’t this city more pedestrian-friendly?

A change is needed to be made on both sides in order for Halifax to achieve a suitable environment for pedestrians. The majority of Halifax's demographic is made up of seniors and students which means there will be a lot of pedestrians walking around the streets, and I don't see this pattern changing any time soon. Everything in downtown Halifax is within walkable distance so it would make sense to widen pedestrian sidewalks and make pedestrians a priority when planning future landscapes. At the same time, space is needed for cars so that they can be moved away from crowded places. There needs to be more parking grounds in downtown Halifax so that people do not need to park their cars along sidewalks where space is needed for people to walk. Once the cars are out, any number of space could be dedicated for pedestrians.

And while we're at it, why not clean up the snow from the streets so that space won't be a problem for both pedestrians and cars trying to park?

Re: “Another one bites the dust

Having toured around Halifax in the past, I was actually excited about coming here to start a new life. I was utterly disappointed. As if the high tax and high cost of living weren't enough, it seems every service I got in touch with had to come with a flaw in some way. Most people I see downtown are either disabled, begging, or depressed. Having stayed here for eight months, I've come to notice the amazing contrast between summer and winter, but even the vibe of the summer could not make up for the many issues that Halifax has. I envy you. Hopefully I could move away to Vancouver soon too.
