Halifax, future ghost town

I love the way this city makes it nearly impossible for anyone over the age of 25 who isn't enrolled in school or willing to make minimum wage run screaming West. I have had five amazing friends leave N.S this year, not because they didn't love the city but because they couldn't GET ANY JOB AT ALL. With 40 applications on average sent out a day, and no responses it wasn't for lack of trying. People hire who they know and won't give anyone else a chance. This city is dying. We don't pay our young people enough to survive and soon, Halifax will be a city of pensioners and baby boomers with no one to take care of them when they get old. —On my way to Toronto
