How can the chance that Amazon might come to Nova Scotia be anything but a good idea?
The Regional Municipality has indicated that Halifax will make a proposal to Amazon. While we may be a long shot, not trying would be a huge mistake. Our community has so much to offer, universities, a robust tech sector, a great workforce and a magnificent social and physical environment.
However, we also are home to some of the biggest naysayers and whiners in captivity. Just listen to the Rick Howe show to hear what the bottom of the Halifax barrel sounds like to the outside world.
The city makes proposals to businesses all the time. This is no different, let’s all get behind the Mayor on this.
When I am on the road I use Tims as a great wifi spot to work and have coffee.
The Tim Hortons near the corner of Robie and Young is one of my least favourite places to stop. The service is unusually slow and normally ill mannered and ill tempered.
Today was different, the new layout is bright and airy and the service was delivered by a pleasant and smiling server.
She was a remarkable departure from the norm at this location, although as I sit here it is clear she is the only pleasant employee on staff.
Dartmouth Nova Scotia is a great City, part of the Halifax Regional Municipality.
Too often we are critiqued based on outdated notions of what this community is all about.
A case in point is raised by Municipal Councillor Sam Austin http://www.samaustin.ca/letter-to-the-coast-downtown-dartmouth/
The Coast was once a great paper, let’s hope they can aspire to that again.
