Waye Mason For District 7

Well, no blog posts for a while!  Why you ask?  Because this happened today: Today I launch my campaign to become the councillor for the new District 7 Peninsula South Downtown. In just over eight months, on October 20th 2012, the citizens of Halifax Regional Municipality will have a chance to vote for change. As the councillor for District 7, –more–

A short note on my slow posting ways!

I got into the SMU part time MBA!  Yay me! However, my non-work non-school time has shrunk to a very small part of my life. I will try and post every couple of weeks.  Try is the operative word.  Midterms (at work and at school) are happening in two weeks, so we shall see. Thanks for your patience!

A look back at 2010

What can I say, 2010 was a good year for me and for my little corner of the web here on Halifax Politics dot ca. The biggest thing for me this year was the end of my ten year reign as the El Supremo and visionary of the Halifax Pop Explosion. I went to the Halifax Pop Explosion board in –more–

Posting

I would love to write a couple of long analysis pieces about the WTCC2 debate but my doctor told me not to use my right hand as I have mild cubital tunnel syndrome, a nerve pinch repetitive stress injury thing.  Monday I can type two handed again.  Sorry for the delay!

More ferry tails.

Today I would say the Halifax III on the way to Woodside was rocking back and forth, port to starboard, from level to 10% up on the starboard side. Rock rock. Rock rock. Rockrock.

For Blaire

The first warning came at my obliquely, a sharp, concerned comment from my wife. “Is there something going on with Blaire?  Your aunt’s Facebook is….” She trails off. She looks at me across the living room, concerned.  I grab my laptop off of the coffee table, nonchalantly snap open the lid, saying “oh yeah, she has been sick for a –more–

Recession? We've heard of it.

Last night I was out Christmas shopping at Chapters, and it was very very busy, as had been the mall earlier that evening.  No parking, packed escalators, the works.  Or rather, the usual.  The usual is ununsual given these trying economic times! I asked the nice clerk at the cash if it had been this busy all day.  She said –more–

Vanity

I was pleased to note that if you type in “Halifax world class” in Google, the 9th web page noted is  the article I wrote about Halifax’s obsession with big falutin’ megaprojects.  Thank you to everyone linking to this site!

Various things

I am going to Toronto on Wednesday for NXNE. Woot! Buffalo Tom at the Shoe on Thursday the 7th. HPX got our Service Canada grants. The program is a total farce, now. They are giving everyone what they got last year, with no actual oversight or review. Garbage. So much for the new government of Canada. I am on youtube. –more–
