You do not have the right to block my way or impede me on a public thouroughfare. On my way to Halifax, along the eastern shore, via highway 7 I encountered a parade.

Highway 7 IS THE ONLY ROUTE through Moser River where I was stopped by a gentleman with a flashlight (in the daytime). He said I had to wait for 1.5 Hours for a parade to finish. I told him he couldn't do that his permit doesn't trump my right to come and go as I please unless there is an emergency, the road is being repaired or weather.

"The Parade" consisted of people with pickup trucks with kids in the back. It is illegal to drive with kids unsecured in your vehicle. Does HRM have parade insurance? Does this insurace company know that they are breaking the law?

At a family gathering I really lost it with my sister in law. She said they were only going 5km/hour. Any number of things could have happened to endanger those kids. Thats why there is a law. So my brother in law the councilor walks up to me. I told him he did not want to talk to me now. He did and I ripped him a new one.

He just couldn't seem to get the idea that he had no right to block my way. It was like talking to a brick wall and his wife thought their parade trumps physics. —sandbag026
