The longer I live in Halifax, the more I disagree with the goings on at City Hall! This will be the busiest year ever for tourism in Halifax, so what is the city going to do for the event? They will tear up one of the busiest tourist areas in the city. They are telling the restaurants in the area that they can't have any decks this year. Think of the business they will lose. No wonder they are suing developers! I'm sure the tourists will have many nice photos to send to friends and families, if they can get the rat out of the picture! —Who makes these decisions?
