TickleMyAnus: I actually did not have a choice in the matter. I would have stayed otherwise.
Great Value: You're right, it is a pussy bike, but I drive it because I'll kill myself on a more powerful bike.
Cumonalready: It isn't a motorized pedal bike, it has an engine without pedals. It isn't about stringent rules that Onterrible has. The NS licence should transfer no problem to ON, and NOT the other way around, if anything.
This is because in NS, our moped license is up to 100cc, but in ON it's only 50cc. So the person moving from ON to NS who is trained up to a 50cc engine MAX now suddenly can drive a 100cc?!
In my case, I'm qualified up to 100cc and have driven 250cc before, but have to accept a downgrade to 50cc. Doable. Not to mention my bike meets their requirements, because I have a 50cc scooter.
Furious Poprah: Sorry. It's a hassle and I'm venting. You wouldn't like it either if you had to retake a driver's exam.
I need to get my moped inspected here before I do anything, but to get it inspected I need my licence to drive it legally...
...but to get a licence I need to take a test...
...which requires me to get the damn thing to the test centre...
...which requires me to have insurance, registration, and permit...
...which requires me to have a ON licence...
and ON AND ON AND FUCKING ON.
I did this in NS.
That's why I'm pissed.
To the OP:
I would have helped you with whatever course of action you would have wanted to take at the time. Reading this pisses me off. Totally assault.
Roads are PUBLIC. Everyone pays for them in some way. Period.
Say this to yourselves often, every time you make your commute into or out of the city.
Roads are PUBLIC.
Away with the ownership rights.
The reality is, the city doesn't plow for citizens to drive around as they please.
They plow roads so that a fire truck can put out a single house fire before it turns into a neighbourhood fire. They plow so that an ambulance can get to someone's home and perform CPR on the out of shape fat ass that would rather the city deal with their sidewalk so he can enjoy his salty snacks in front of the TV. They plow so that the cops can get to a crime scene. And they plow so buses can make it up hills with all-season tires.
We benefit from plowing only because we have emergency services that need it done.
A policy that allows citizens to sit on their asses and eat more fucking snack food while letting the city deal with snow removal further encourages our fat ass citizens to get fatter.
Halifax has a weight problem, and this policy only makes it worse.
Avoid crosswalks, avoid pedestrian signals, and return to the universally applicable method of crossing the street.
It guarantees everyone's safety, it goes like this:
Look both ways before crossing the street, and cross when no one is coming.
We should have more bus shelters, but they should be made to withstand abuse without shattering constantly. After all, they're expensive.

Nothing unusual or atypical of Halifax in here, but the venue is interesting, downstairs open air feel, high ceilings, and the upstairs is a bit more intimate. Music doesn't deviate too much from the norm.
