As someone who fondly reads all of your charming bitches evey week via the web, thank you for your rants. They remind me why Halifax is still the best place to come home to when you're stuck in a shithole city like Montreal. Yes, everyone tells me they'd love to live here, but let's get something straight.Every night there are random shootings in hip downtown bars, tons of gang-related violence, Montrealers are the most dangerously reckless drivers I have ever encountered - EVERYTIME I leave my house I almost get hit by a car, the city is falling apart - potholes, endless construction, snow that's never removed from sidewalks - imagine being a physically challenged or elderly person, trying to navigate three or four layers of snowfall that have been compacted down into a solid sheet of ice for four months of the year, downtown alleyways teeming with month-old garbage, -43 degree windchill in the winter and 43 degree humidexes in the summer, an overwhelmingly rude, racist, ugly and horribly-dressed populace, not to mention the incredible lack of service from places of business, and any kind of courtesy or care from just about anyone. So, as we ex-pat Haligonians sip our Just Us coffee we smuggled into this shit city, and dream of summers at the beach, strolls along Argyle Street and the boats bobbing in the Northwest Arm... keep posting your bitches. If all you have to worry about is little shit-faced punks downtown and rude transit workers, trust me - there are legions of envious displaced Haligonians out there reading along...and missing good 'ol Halifax. See you soon!

We miss you Halifax
