thank you so much to those in power who decided that the chebucto road widening was a good idea. first you take people's property, then you create more traffic in an attempt to fix a problem we didn't really have (this is halifax, when has anyone ever been in traffic for more then ten minutes that wasn't related to construction?) and now - now you have created such a mess that no one, pedestrian or driver knows what to do!
i was nearly in tears the other day as i tried to take two little girls i was babysitting to a nearby park, and could not get across chebucto road! no matter whether i went up or down blocks, i was stuck. and today i witnessed an elderly woman nearly get hit by a car that had been told to proceed.
i sincerly wish that no one gets hurt, but i don't believe that my wish is truly realistic.
