Re: “Didn't realize Parking Enforcement were on strike, too...

Enforcement has slipped significantly on my street near the Emera Oval.

Agree with all points made in the bitch post.

Best way to deal with the problem is 490-5020, it's HRP's non-emergency number. The dispatchers are great. You feel like a nuisance reporting illegally parked cars, but they'll assure you you're not, and ask that you call back if the problem persists.

The Oval draws all kinds of parking scofflaws to this neighbourhood, there is a real need for some additional enforcement to counter the problem.

Re: “Cyclists, get off the crosswalks!

Jim, if I hit you with my car while you're on a bicycle in a crosswalk, no court is going to make me pay you for damages. The police will visit you in the hospital and ticket you, and my car insurance provider will sue you for the damages your unlawfully operated vehicle caused to my automobile, as well as the cost of my rental car. No one will accept "But it was raining" as a defense. You're broke the law, not me. After you've suffered personal and financial hardship due to your completely preventative mistake, you'd seek me out to cause me harm? Gimme a break.

Re: “Advantage Movers

Terrible. After they moved Beth Nada on 05/01/13 (see other review), they came to move my partner and I. We booked them for 6pm. They were seven hours late, showing at almost 1am, and the first thing one of them asked was if it was alright if they go smoke marijuana before they started. I don't think they did, they got moving as they should have considering the time. They damaged the walls on the way out of the building, and our pieces of our furniture were damaged during the move. They followed us to our new flat. The tenants in the flat below us came out angry, of course, because by now it was pushing 2am. One of the movers had the nerve to ask the tenant who came out to complain for a glass of water. She complained they smelled of marijuana. Our landlord had to remove a futon from the flat we were moving into and asked our movers if they could do it. Turns out they could, right in the middle of our booking.... at like 1:45am, while they were clocking our bill. It took them 90 minutes to wrap up the move, start to finish (it was only ten things), but they billed us for the whole two hours they'd quoted us. Nobody gave any excuses for being seven hours late, and no one fessed up to any of the damage, and it went unnoticed until after they'd left with our money.
