Remarks: The wheels on the bus go round and round, but the kids on the bus go up and down. Way up and down, especially on Ahern, one of the arteries bordering the new school, where the potholes are so deep and roomy they’ve been scouted by spelunkers. In a few short weeks when the school opens, the traffic along there will be raging, so now would seem like an appropriate time to fill the holes in. Consider the public outrage if a busload of students disappeared, lost in a crazy road canyons. I’d rather not.


Who's Responsible?: HRM Transportation and Public Works, Streets and Roads Services. 490-4000.
