Making council smaller will hurt downtown

Boundary review issue comes before council Tuesday


Halifax council Tuesday will take up the “boundary review” issue---the re-jigging of electoral districts to meet population changes.

This is usually a matter left to bureaucrats and policy wonks, but unfortunately lots of nonsense has been added to the mix this time around, so it’s quite possible that we’re going to see council produce a redistricting plan that won’t just move a few boundary lines but will instead reduce the number of councillors, which in turn will have negative effects that should concern all of us.
