Smokers, vapers, everywhere...


...both in downtown Halifax and Dartmouth. It's quite obvious by now that the folks in charge have no intention of enforcing the new smoking ban. Rather, by making the ban complaint-driven only (noxious phrase!), these people at the top are offloading their job tasks and responsibilities onto the ordinary citizen: The one whose taxes pay their salaries. This is trickle-down Neoliberalism to the municipal level that is appearing in cities across Canada. Other examples are the normalization of food banks and emergency homeless shelters. I say first things first: We need not increased taxation but existing monies spent more wisely on affordable and accessible housing and food, educational resources for kids and teachers and a healthcare delivery overhaul. We do not need a football stadium!
