I live downtown. So every day I get up and go to work on foot through the streets of Halifax.

Two things to get out of the way. Number one, I'm from Ontario. Number two, it is my lay understanding of Nova Scotia that Halifax has a rich drinking culture. Presumably this culture has developed over a hundred years of sailors, military conflicts, and post-secondary education.

In all that time, did nobody teach a Haligonian to hold their liquor?

I swear, every other step I'm treading carefully to avoid some amateur's puke stain. Were that not enough, there is also broken glass to avoid, plaper plates from pizza corner, and a few weeks ago some chick's weave was strewn across the sidewalk on Brunswick. Mercy. And tut, tut.

I don't see this happening back home and I've lived in a few big University towns including Glasgow, Scotland.

So is it overservice? Overindulgence? Or is it that the residents of Halifax can't get a grip on their liquor?

Just asking,

HLR
