 Halifax, Nova Scotia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From the construction of the Halifax Citadel as a counterpoint to the French fortress at Louisbourg, to the Royal Navy's largest dockyard in the Western Hemisphere, the history of the city is intertwined with story of the British Imperial forces in North America and the North Atlantic.
Halifax ceased to exist as an incorporated city when it was amalgamated with Bedford, Dartmouth and the County of Halifax in 1996 to form Halifax Regional Municipality, commonly refered to as HRM, a single regional governmental structure that is unique to Nova Scotia.
After election to the House of Assembly as leader of the Liberal party, one of his first acts was the incorporation of the City of Halifax in 1842.

 HDPTA Presentation to City Council 94/04/16
Halifax District PTA has been aware for several months that the school system in the city of Halifax would be facing significant budget cuts this year, and in the next three years as well.
They bring this request to the city in recognition of the city's attempts to reduce its own expenditures, and we applaud the Board for their efforts to cut costs and demonstrate their willingness to participate with the city in finding solutions to the city's budget difficulties.
As citizens who need the services which the city provides, and as taxpayers who pay property taxes on our homes, the parents of the children in these schools are acutely aware of the kind of budgetary crisis the city faces.

 Water privateers: Three strikes and you’re out -- Strike one — Halifax tears up water P3 (Canadian Union of Public Employees)
Halifax city council has backed out of a major wastewater P3 with French water multinational Suez.
The push is now on to ensure city council moves forward with a project that’s publicly owned and operated — for the good of the city, the harbour and the environment.
Halifax’s mayor has publicly stated that canceling the deal will save millions of dollars, exposing the lie that P3s save money.

 The Parkland Post - Water Privatization strikes out!
Halifax city council has canceled a major wastewater P3 with French water multinational Suez, after the company refused to take responsibility for meeting environmental standards.
A key consultant’s report to Moncton city council has recommended that they do not privatize the city’s water supply arguing that the city can do the upgrades itself and spread the cost over 20 years.
A staff report to council identifies more public control of water services, and added costs and delays associated with the P3 process, as arguments for public ownership and operation.

 CTV.ca Final bid chosen for Halifax harbour clean-up
Halifax city council heard details Monday afternoon on the final bids for the $315 million contract to clean up the sewage-flooded Halifax harbour, a plan that's been in the works for seven years.
The project was supposed to reach city council back in August, but the schedule was delayed when city staff asked for more time to look at the financial aspects of the bids.
Raw sewage -- about 100 million litres a day -- has been pouring into the harbour for years, and council is planning on having that situation rectified by early 2006, at the latest.

 Letters - The Coast (NOVEMBER 11-NOVEMBER 18 2004)
Halifax regards itself as a “SuperCity.” If Halifax wants to talk the talk, then it should implement emergency housing facilities as has been done in real cities like Winnipeg and Toronto.
I am referring specifically to the approach Halifax Regional Municipality is taking on the issue of slum landlords through municipal bylaw M-100, which addresses slum housing.
We can’t allow businesses such as the Halifax Alehouse and Corporate Communications Ltd. to think for even a second that billboards such as this (nor the underlying feelings and beliefs necessary in imagining such a campaign in the first place) will be tolerated.

 The Greek on Halifax
The Adelaide City Council's Halifax Street development site has happened after not very many years wait, a twinkling of an eye really in council-think.
What it's all about doesn't look and get better than at the Greek on Halifax, where the city council's old incinerator, chimney and general dump is a newborn hamlet.
Despite the presence of the lettuce, the salad was good enough to call for a reprise, with a plate of char-grilled meats, mainly meatballs, ouvlakia and yiros.

 Charlie doesn't like the Halifax City Council!!!!
I was originally going to send this email to Sue Uteck only - to tell her how sorry I was to hear of how hard a time she obviously had at the city council meeting on Tuesday night trying to get more off-leash places for dog owners in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
The following is the text of an email I sent to Sue Uteck and Harry McInroy about the Tuesday December 16, 2003 meeting of the Halifax City Council as reported in the Halifax Chronicle Herald's news report in http://www.herald.ns.ca/stories/2003/12/17/f247.raw.html
I think we dog lovers have been targeting the wrong people on city council - we should be trying to educate the Henry McInroy's, not lobbying the Sue Uteck's.

 Evolution of The Halifax EcoCity Project
They were citizens of the City of Adelaide, residents and business people who believed that what UEA had put forward and what was included in the Council brief would benefit them, and people from other areas of metropolitan Adelaide who wished to be future residents of the project.
The process for Halifax Adelaide has failed to do this, and in doing so has failed to comply with the brief which was put forward by Council after a significant investment of time and resources.
Meetings promised by the City Council to discuss the state of the site were not forthcoming.
