Most Important Local Issue

  • Jarvis Lane

Gold Winner Affordable housing

Silver Winner Construction downtown

Bronze Winner Transit

Moving up from silver last year to take the gold for Most Important Local Issue is the city’s lack of affordable housing. Take that as a sign that the development boom and rising income inequality are pushing Halifax further towards a full-blown crisis (assuming you’re not convinced we’re already there). At least everyone at Halifax Transit can breathe a sigh of relief and relax now that bus service is no longer in the top slot. Next stop: don’t get cocky.
