A Toronto, Bulk Barn is running a pilot project to bring your reusable containers with you; I wonder if they will weigh me and then I can just graze.

Canada’s first Uniqlo opens on Friday in Toronto’s Eaton Centre (though it will be a long time if HRM ever sees one)

events

E-Voting for the HRM Municipal elections begins Tuesday at 8 am until the 13th at 7 pm; Election Day is Saturday the 15th if you like the ceremony of a paper ballot.  You should have a voter card in your mailbox if you don’t the folks at HRM Elections are ready to help http://www.halifax.ca/election/index.php 

No statement on the individual councilors, but we like to complain about the little things, and the municipality is often the solution. We have councillors that were elected with only 8.3% of the eligible votes in their district and one with 10.9%.

You can make a difference.
Yes, I realize districts 3,4,15 & 16 are acclaimed for the council seats, but there is still school board and mayor.

  1. I know some information about the individuals running for counsellor but who are the people who are interested in being on the school board?? I’m supposed to vote for someone I haven’t got a clue about and the first time I’ll see their name is on the ballot!! I have spoken to others and they say the same or don’t even know there is a school board election happening!. This is my first time voting for municipal and school board election in Halifax. Where I was before everyone knew who was running for counsellor in their area but we’re also given information on the school board nominees. These are the ones who will be deciding the future of education in Halifax!!!!!! Information is essential!!! How am I to vote or do what most are saying, “Don’t bother. pick any name ” This is not the way things need to be done. HELP!!
