Re: “Dispensing with marijuana prohibition

The people in her shop weren't "patients," they were customers seeking a product. She is a business woman who opened a for-profit shop that was illegal. It is what it is.

Re: “The Seaport Market and the problem of “authentic Maritime culture”

Sherwood - over 71 percent of immigrants stay after one year. Your statistic is incorrect. We have a very high retention rate.

On your main point, it is silly to "hide" the ethnic food purveyors. Nova Scotia is quickly becoming a haven for immigrants; that should be on display at the iconic Farmers' Market.

Re: “Mayor Mike Savage owes all of us an apology

M2A, how on earth is begging for an apology doing something? It's useless. The City screwed up, big time. But to define a Mayoral apology as something of "critical importance?" Please. Self-righteousness at its finest.

Re: “Mayor Mike Savage owes all of us an apology

Typical Dippers, wanting something useless. What good is an apology? How on earth could anyone have foreseen what this winter had in store? We haven't had a winter like this in a long, long time.

Re: “Halifax Water should stop poisoning us

This is a social/political argument, not a scientific one. The science is clear. There have been no causal links revealed through peer-reviewed scientific research, linking fluoridation in public water systems and diseases like cancer and hypothyroidism (which is highly likely auto-immune and runs in families). This is simply an argument against a government taking an action that results in its citizens ingesting something involuntarily. I have no concerns for my health, or that of my family, because we drink tap water. I respect that others would not choose to ingest fluoride, but are forced to. Unfortunately, the anti-fluoridation movement undermines this argument through fear-mongering based on information that isn't factual, and by feeding into some people's susceptibility to paranoia.

Re: “All four District 12 candidates want to raise most residents' taxes

I think there are many more condos in District 12 than District 10. District 10 is very apartment-heavy, few condo buildings. Clayton Park West is full of condominiums.
