Enough with the detours..

Posted on Fri, Jul 24, 2015 at 4:00 AM

It seems that every summer here in HRM people have to put up with being rerouted when using public sidewalks or even some streets, due to construction or window washing or whatever, supposedly under the guise of safety. As a wheelchair-bound person, it affects my ability to get around. In the case of construction, the sidewalks do not need to be shut down during non work hours, like overnights and on weekends and holidays. It's time for these idiots to use common sense and stop this practice and to the fuckwads at HRM that OK this and endorse it, fuck you all to hell for your inconsiderate attitude about this.. I, and folks like me, have the right to get from A to B without having unnecessary obstacles being placed in our paths and I'd like to see others like me get more proactive about this and put pressure on the city to be less rigid and at least accommodate us during the off hours at these sites. I can't imagine how tourists see this insidious practice.. Such an inconvenience can't be good for tourism.. —Tired of Being Rerouted
