Re: “A letter to Sam Austin, about downtown Dartmouth

Its come a long way, but it has a bit to go. As a teenager in the 80's Portland street was an absolute no-go zone. Now, I go there on the weekend and have fun. There are normal people now walking at night, but still sketchy at times.
I would say the same about dutch village road in fairview. It's coming along now with good restos and buildings you want to live in (not just because it's the only thing you can afford)

Really good things happening in both places, and I'm looking forward to what comes next.

Re: “Bullies in the 902

Sounds like someone had a micro-aggression in their safe zone!

Re: “MLA Compensation

That would certainly help; but our main problem in government actually isn't the elected officials. It's the throngs of provincial public services workers.

NS has the highest amount of public service workers per capita in the country, and that group doesn't perform very well at all. Who do you know gets a job in government because they want to achieve something? they go for 'job security'.

Think of the bluenose2; the reason that went so badly doesn't have anything to do with elected officials, and everything to do with a bloated bureaucracy that is far more concerned with staying out of trouble then doing a good job. This is where our money is going, to subsidize non-workers who punch the clock and do nothing in-between 9-5, if they go to 'work' at all.

I'll also pre-emptively respond to the loser reading this and thinking I'm jealous. I'm way better than that. Some of us actually want to do something useful with our time. What the government can do is just get out of the way. I don't care if they don't work, just don't get in my way of getting things done.

Re: “Teachers are leeches holding us to ransom

Tie the pay to performance; if the students are consistently ranking at the top of the national standings, then the teachers should be paid appropriately. Innovate and raise the quality of your work, and then come back for a raise.
