Remarks: A little too much time on your hands (Cough! Metro Transit! Cough!), a generous helping of teenage anger and a Sharpie is a lethal combination. Well, maybe not lethal, but certainly annoying. The fact that most riders have a lot of time to kill in the bus shelter is bad enough, but having to stare at some racist, aggressive scrawling is another issue entirely. As the ever-helpful HRM website points out, “Graffiti is a crime!” and what is our duty as citizens if not to report such goings on? We were told that vulgar graffiti is made a priority to be removed before, say, a passage from Proust, or the lyrics to “Stairway to Heaven.”
Who's Responsible?: Metro Transit is responsible for cleaning the bus shelters and reports are sent to them from HRM service requests. Requests to have graffiti removed can be made at 490-4000.
