Churches passing the buck

Posted on Mon, Dec 7, 2015 at 11:24 AM

HRM city council has asked for a report from staff re: taking over the maintenance of five cemeteries since their associated churches have closed and been torn down. Why should the city bear the cost for this? I assume the churches received money for the burials in the first place. The church still exists as an institution, even if that particular branch is closed. Let them pay for it. Does the city pay to clean up the contaminated soil of every lot that used to house a gas station? At least the gas stations payed fucking taxes. — Tired of paying for your hobby
