Councillor Lindell Smith and Halifax Cycling Coalition executive director Kelsey Lane.
City councillor Lindell Smith
was a 16-year-old aspiring audio technician the first time that he was mentioned in The Coast, as part of Stephen Kimber's 2007 cover story, “Inside the Square
.” Smith joins us to talk about the stigma surrounding Uniacke Square, his political goals and how the north end has changed over the past decade.
Also, it was 11 years ago when the Halifax Cycling Coalition formed in response to the death of a cyclist on Barrington Street. Executive director Kelsey Lane
calls in from her vacation to chat about the coalition's history and the exhausting work of improving HRM's streets one metre at a time.
All this, plus Island Greek opens, the Apple Barrel closes, Peter Kelly cozies
up to the Guardian Angels, the province cracks down on squeegee kids, Celine Dion snubs the city and we say goodbye, one last time, to Helen Hill.
