Re: “Shove This Stroller Up Your Exhaust Pipe

Umm, for like forever it's been against their policy to have open strollers on the bus. When I was growing up, and kids didn't ride around in SUVs but NORMAL strollers, you had to collapse them. it's nothing new. People nowadays think the world is all about them and that everyone owes them a free ride. i wish Metro Transit had some balls and BANNED them for life.

Re: “Killing Me Slowly

Thank you. I think these people should be fired. They clearly are not health care professionals, otherwise they would be spreading disease throughout the community. I tried to walk to work but had to pass the hospital. i was tired of feeling sick after I walked past and disgusted by these people, I stopped. And actually, I did not feel compelled to change my route to accommodate people who have NO BUSINESS working in a hospital. I wonder how many cancer patients have to contend with nurses and doctors reeking of cigarette smoke. I think it's a human rights violation.

Re: “Tanya Davis: Artistic tractor

For a poet laureate, this is poorly written: comma splices, run on sentences, improper use of commas, poor and heavy-handed diction. I'd give it a C+. Disappointing to say the least.

Re: “Peter's pants on fire

Kelly will never resign. He will be re-elected. Mark my words. Halifax/Nova Scotia is one, of if not the most, corrupt post colonial regime in the western world not in a conflict (Northern Ireland, eg). It has always been run on corruption and greed under strict colonial conditions and always will be. We have more in common with Libya and Syria than we do with Toronto or Moncton - and I'm not talking rock concerts. However, there will never be a 'revolution' here - not through elections or any other means. Haligonians are no better than any subdued population living under tyranny - it's all they know, fearful, and lacking the education and impetus for change. And, we live under an opiate that we are part of the free world, everywhere is like this, we are so NICE, etc. In short, Haligonians lack the sophistication to see themselves critically and take positive action. Every Haligonian (at least everyone living here for the past 50 years years) knows this - those who tolerate it, stay, those who cannot, leave. Now the problem is made worse because of the expansion of the Halifax empire. When the 'city limits' practically extend to Cape Breton to the east and inclusive of people who live 3 hours away, rarely in the city, with no knowledge of cities, and filled with people who largely ignorant and backward - well, you can kiss all hope goodbye. The only way we will be liberated from this evil, and have any hope for progress, development, growth (the siren call of the fearful) is if there is an external intervention (like shame from Central Canada or NATO). That won't happen. Everyone thinks we live in Canada and we are all the same. One of the great lies of post colonial Canada. So basically Mr Shaw you have the same choice as all Haligonians have had for decades, either you turn your heart to stone and suck it up or you move. Sorry.

Re: “Postal Strikes and Heartaches

I'm with you buddy. Except you don't pay for Jack Layton (you pay for an official opposition, but that is not Jack Layton perse). You DO however pay through the nose for CBC is is welfare for entitled, snotty, and not entirely bright, rich. It's like 1 CBC equals 10000 Jack laytons. If we really want to be smart, we'd save the 100s of millions we spend on supporting the otherwise unemployable and build roads, hospitals, etc and put people with you know SKILLS and ABILITIES to work. But hat would be unCanadian. So, looks like we're stuck with postal workers, CBC, and Jack layton. makes ya want to go postal or something.

They are community-based terrorists. IMO.

Re: “Welcome to Halifax

Welcome, and yes, Halifax is a dump full of awful people. Expect more of the same. Get out while you can, I did.
