To the editor,
In reference to the winter parking ban, I personally am at wits’ end. Halifax is robbing us blind with parking tickets this winter season! I understand that snowplows need to get through, but my shelling out $300 this season doesn’t solve the problem. My past four years here taught me that there are more cars in Halifax than available parking. The city sees this as a profitable opportunity.
While paying my sixth parking ticket at the local HRM office, I was surprised to hear that the employee (who drained my account once again) herself has no parking. She and many others have resorted to pirating spots at local businesses. This can’t continue, or residents may relocate to a city with uninterrupted power service and adequate snow removal.
