Re: “Is future urban farm site contaminated?

I just heard last week that there was a proposal to keep the fantastic auditorium and gym complex, but all the HRM & GNS bureaucrats couldn't agree to retain this acoustically & historically great combo for future generations! Too bad, but not unexpected ;-(

Re: “Chequebook politics leaves city staff short changed

Baseing one's compensation on comparing the size of one's employer, ie: the City; to that of another employer in the same line of business, ie: other cities, doesn't seem to account for many reasonable employment attributes & qualities let alone effectiveness and productivity. Given that our taxes are high and going higher, Hfx Harbour Solutions is behind schedule and over budget, city spirit has seen better days, downtown development is stagnant and our political leadership seems devoid of 21st century progressive ideas maybe our Councillors' compensation should be incentive based. Pay them a $50K base salary and then a $25K performance bonus based on achieving reasonable attendance, budget and productivity targets. It will never happen, but maybe just the thought of it would improve Council's activities.

Re: “Tears for beers as the Midtown's end nears

Even though I might have had my first beer at the Lighthouse after winning a QE BBall tournament with Bob Douglas, the Midtown soon became THE place to go with my school friends, sailing buds, family and now my kids. The menu changes spanned a generation - remember those cups of ketchup, a full meal and 2 beers for <$10, and the hot turkey dinner!! While I promote change in Halifax, I do wish the Midtown could stay. All the best to Robert & Eric ++.
