Yours truly watched the Halifax regional council meeting last night, to see if any discussion was held on the unfair parking ban. Dawn Sloane introduced an anti winterban petition (please sign it, unless your name is Marilla) into council, which took all of thirty seconds. No additional motions, items, or any other time was devoted to that issue which has given me and my fellow near-downtown residents crippling insomnia. 30 seconds.
On the other hand, council did spend 30-40 minutes discussing the cost, benefits, dangers, options, aesthetics, and nimbyism involved in removing a series of rose bushes from Dunbrack Street. Job well done, sirs and madams. This, of course, does mean war.
