Enough is enough

How many more HRP and RCMP officers are going to be arrested and charged with serious crimes such as domestic assaults, theft and DUIs, only to have the charges dropped, before there is call for a public inquiry. Apparently the only people the police are serving and protecting are their own. All police officers must be held to a higher standard than the average citizen!

Liquor and weed and cigs

Posted By on Sun, Nov 3, 2019 at 3:55 PM

message-in-a-bottle.jpg
The only liquor store near me is this little boutique version that is never open on Sundays and closes at 6pm. What a pain in the ass. Every time I wanna buy some drinks, it's closed! WHY can't it be open seven days a week until 10pm like the rest, and on Sundays? Having to walk all the way to the NSLC's store in the fucking dark isn't my idea of a fun night.

Secondly, why are weed, booze and cigs so damn expensive these days? You work your guts out all week just to afford to have fun for ONE day only. Fucking bullshit!

CPS

Posted By on Wed, Oct 16, 2019 at 9:48 AM

hires.jpg
I have been doing a bit of work for a fella on his house that he just bought, and became pretty good friends with him. We shoot the shit a lot and discuss what's going on in our lives. He is separated with one 13-year-old girl with his ex. He told me the other day that his ex called Child Protective Services on him, saying that he physically abused her and a few other things (which I believe he didn't do).

Anyways CPS came over and he talked to them, and at the end of the conversation he asked them if they were going to go investigate his ex, as that is where all the problems are occurring: the girl is living with no structure, staying up as late as she wants, watching or listening to whatever she wants, being home alone constantly. All they said was their job was to investigate him and that was it.
He has been having this problem with the system for years, and because he is the father, not the mother, the system automatically shuns him. The system looks to favour the woman, and not even do a proper investigation on what is better for the child instead of, in their own words, "try to keep families together" even if that is doing more harm then good.

Everyone says that there shouldn't be any discrimination or sexism, but ever so sadly we see it in the public system still favouring women automatically and just disregarding the man as a "deadbeat" even when we just want what is best for our child physically, mentally and emotionally. When does the favouritism stop and a fair trial began? How can CPS just completely ignore the best interest of what they are there to do!!!

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Attention voters: Ask yourselves this, as you try to figure out which political party deserves your support on October 21: Will your party really, truly attempt to address child poverty in this country? Health care? Climate change? Public safety? Veterans’ mental health? Electoral reform?

Will it matter if the Conservatives form the next government, or the Liberals or the NDP? The probable answer to all these questions: Fuck no.

Anarchy isn’t the answer, of course, but electors are fooling themselves if they think the next gang to hunker down in Ottawa will manage national issues any differently than previous members of parliament. I have been voting since the 1970s. REAL change hasn’t happened in Canada yet.

Perhaps my grandchildren, when they’re old enough to vote in 16 years, will have more positive results to report.

Trees: you CAN have too much of a good thing

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2019 at 3:34 PM

finger-on-target.jpg
A big thank you to the guys in khaki from Gagetown, NB who arrived Sunday afternoon to cut my fallen tree down to size, done in 10 minutes, and neatly stacked curbside all ready for the HRM chipper. BUT I couldn't help wondering what all this Hurricane Dorian clean-up is costing the taxpayer, much of which could be prevented if the municipality seriously rethought its tree-planting policy: On my walks over the weekend, I noticed that almost all of the fallen trees had very shallow roots; our urban environment of concrete and asphalt makes it impossible for trees to send down deep roots. My particular young tree had been planted right into the wires extending from my roof corner and right up against my underground water main. Did we learn nothing from Hurricane Juan? HRM must stop planting trees that grow to be 100 feet high: I suggest that HRM plant trees native to NS that will grow to be no more than 15-to-20 feet high. Everyone will still get their summer shade and carbon-cleaning, but they will no longer be a hazard to people's homes and overhead wires. There will also be a LOT fewer leaves in the fall clogging up our stormwater catch basins, which is a major cause of flooding.

How to solve traffic congestion in peninsular Halifax—NOT

Posted By on Thu, Aug 29, 2019 at 3:02 PM

hires.jpg
Throw more asphalt and concrete at it? I think those 40-foot long asphalt ramp thingies on South Park Street are raised bike lanes, and now there are four-inch-high concrete bollards along the rest of SP Street as well. I left work at noon today, and the buses and big trucks going opposite ways could barely squeeze past each other without scraping their sides. How is reducing SP St. to a single lane in either direction going to solve traffic congestion? It won't. Every time a bus stops, traffic will get backed up behind it—and I've heard that city hall wants to reduce Spring Garden Road to a single lane in either direction as well. Are they insane?

I hate motorists as much as the next bloke, but they have to drive and park SOMEWHERE. And I can see those asphalt ramps and bollards getting smoked by the first snowplow that passes them this winter. And when the city demolishes the Cogswell Interchange? Best dust off your sturdiest walkin' shoes, folks, 'cuz it'll be the only way to get around that won't make you bonkers over the next five years!

The end of Point Pleasant Park????

Posted By on Tue, Aug 13, 2019 at 12:01 PM

bitch-devil-computer.jpg
I recently read in the news that HRM has plans to improve (??) the conditions at Point Pleasant Park. Basically, they want to eliminate 80,000 trees from a section of 100,000 trees in PPP. In the article, you'll see that they plan on leaving the 80,000 felled trees to rot and provide nourishment for the forest. I'm not an expert on wildfires, but I think I know enough that you need to keep the floor of the forest clear of debris. I can only think that these felled trees would create a tinderbox that will burst into flames from a discarded burning cigarette. Are they simply being cheap, so that the company awarded the contract won't have to deal with the cost of disposing of these trees? Or is there a condo developer that wants to acquire this prime piece of property, after it has been leveled by fire? Google "summer tree-thinning post-Juan."

Disability Support Program from community services

Posted By on Thu, Jun 20, 2019 at 2:14 PM

world-in-trash.jpg
The program is not doing enough for people with physical and mental health disabilities. If a person tries to go get help on their own, like for the proper therapy in helping with PTSD, well, community services considers going to school work, not therapy, so they make you sign up for employment works! If a person is disabled and can't work because of severe physical and mental health issues, why are they told that if they don't sign up for the program, it could effect their funding? That is the line they use on every piece of paper that is sent to clients. This is a form of intimidation. How is it helping anything?

Manic monopoly

Posted By on Sat, Sep 2, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Hey HRM Planners, Councillors or whomever else is approving all of this construction:

It's great to create a growing city, but can you slow the fuck down for a minute? Who the hell is going to live in all of these overpriced condo/apartments? And by the way, allowing a building on the baordwalk/waterfront is just gross and you should all be poked with a stick for allowing that to go through.

There was a time when the old boys wouldn't let anything be built at all, because of historic value, and that was a pain because then buildings just rotted. But now it seems like you're just letting anything go up and at a rapid pace, without regard for aesthetics, history, architecture or just plain ol' common sense.  Did anyone think to stagger the timing of developments? Can't you wait to see how what we have now fills up before shoving other unnecessary condos/apartments/retail spaces down our throats? And don't get me started on the logistical nightmare of manoeuvring the downtown area, where the crane has become the city's official bird.

This summer was a particular disaster, and it's not like you didn't know it would be a big tourism year, what with 150 and Tall Ships and all. Did someone just say "hey, let's invite all kinds of tourists here and then not let them get around”? It's like someone is playing a crazy-ass game of monopoly up in here and it's a fucking free-for-all. Enough! DON'T SELL BOARDWALK!!

Seriously. Stop it. —Developing Distaste

Halifax says "grasscycling"

Posted By on Mon, Aug 21, 2017 at 10:45 AM

Recycling halifax has new radio ad about "grasscycling."

"Grasscycling is when you let your lawn cuttings fall into your lawn. It is a great new idea and you should try it!"

OMFG! City hall is paying someone a good salary to come with...um...nothing! Hey, dumbass! It is called mowing with a mulching blade. It has been around for many many decades. Just because you gave it a new word doesn’t mean that it is new.

I am pissed. I am pissed that someone pays you a salary. I am pissed that you are so smug to think that this is something that only you know about. I am floored that you don't recognize that this is not something that requires a high priced educational ad on the radio.

Do the taxpayers a favour and quit your job so someone worth their paycheque can replace you. —In the real world, you'd be fired for wasting money.
