Re: “Halifax mentioned in national list

there needs to be a debate about built heritage and progress in this city. Sadly this article doesn't do that. it should be troubling when 50% of the losses are in Nova Scotia. it should also be noted that the view from citadel hill has never made the top 10 endangered places list.

the HTNS, with their no compromise positions, sets them selves up to oppose, rather then work with developers to better preserve heritage. the infants home loss needs to be worn by HTNS. They Failed. they were told of the decision prior to the demolition, and knew it was a possibility over the winter, but did nothing publicly to raise awareness, or get the public to campaign the SMU board to save the building. their silence on the Dennis building is also astounding.

Peggy, If you want the HTNS to succeed, they need to be a better public advocate for heritage. it cant be done behind closed doors anymore. they need to stop their obsession with anything that is tall, or else the result will be a stunning view from citadel hill of all the flattened heritage lying in rubble piles across the provence.

Re: “This time, I’m the one saying “Farewell to Nova Scotia”

Ex ottawan here.
1. thriving arts scene is there - look. Halifax has nothing like Ifco or arts court.
2. Coast equivlilant is the ottawa xpress - even does the Best of thing.
3. Canal + gatineau park powerfull combo - you will miss salt air.
4. craft brew - Beau's all natural, Kitchisippi Brewing, Clock tower pub..
5. its about 50% Gov 50% private so not all gov, and belive it or not they are generally nice people outside the office.
6. not really sprawl - compute split is 60/40 (60 go downtown, 40 go out), Nepean and kanata are huge employment centers.
7. Ottawa has tons of NGO's more national in scope, but they are there.

Downsides - No Donair or Garlic Fingers. not proper anyway
80degree seasonal temp range -40 to +40

Enjoy it, its not Halifax, but its not bad.
