Halifax Is Not A Shithole!

I have been reading enough about Halifax being such a "shithole." When are we going to realize that we have the power to change this? I mean, OK, so we're not Alberta or British Columbia or somewhere "important" but we also can do better than just wallowing in how we are such a have-not anyway. Halifax can be about its people: not its "besties" or "peeps" but real people. And we need to lose the attitude and the constantly sad music about coal-mining disasters and losing men at sea. The attitude isn't helping and Halifax is only a shithole because we are too cynical to take any pride when it's too tidy to just wallow in it and default to the notion that we're not supposed to be so welcoming when we only care about our own selfish adequacy or survival in spite of everybody else. The problem is us, and we have to deal with it. Halifax could be heaven on earth if we chose for it to be. -Enough Have-Not Already
