Voting has begun!

Online voting is now open. This campaign I’ve talked about my record as your Councillor and shared my report card that shows that when I make promises I worked hard and deliver them.

He consults with citizens and is responsive to their concerns. He possesses read more

Thank you, residential rental rule changes proposed, short term rental regulations proposed, Centre Plan, voting info, more

I’d like to thank everyone for taking precautions this week when it looked like Teddy was going to wallop Nova Scotia. I’m the son of a sailor and grew up next to the ocean, so I know the forecasts are just that, and the ocean and these storms can be highly unpredictable.  We were lucky this time, like we were with Hortense, but we’ve also been unlucky, like with Juan and Dorian. It is always better in my opinion to err read more

NOAA has updated their tracking (next Env.

Hurricane Teddy Update 1

Hurricane Teddy is approaching Nova Scotia and while this morning it appears to be tracking to the northeast of central Halifax, in our recent experience hurricanes seem to ‘make up their minds’ when they are in sight of land. The direction the storm takes could see it land anywhere from Sambro to Canso right now, so it is important to be prepared. This post contains the official HRM update, NS Power update, and a list of practical things you can do to personally read more

Endorsement – Grace Robinson-Crawley

Grace called me out of the blue one day for a meeting and came down to City Hall to talk about how we could all help street involved folks and not turn our backs on these vulnerable citizens.

I am so happy that Waye Mason is running for councillor again! I read more
