Worst Thing To Happen In Halifax In The Past Year

Gold Winner The Concert Scandal

Silver Winner Peter Kelly/Peter Kelly still in office

Bronze Winner Approval of the convention centre

There’s so much blame to go around for the concert scandal: an absurd media-created “feud” between Halifax and Moncton; the desire of middle-aged councillors to rub elbows with aging rock stars; a bumbling mayor who thought he could get re-elected as a hip music promoter; a city bureaucracy that hid failing concert attendance numbers from the public; a ridiculously incompetent impresario and a provincial crown corporation that skimmed money from every deal, never mind if the contracts were legal or not. It just goes to show that Halifax hasn’t left its pathetic old boy reputation behind.
