If it's anything like BC, the bars almost always lose. I don't know
much about Halifax, but it's anything like Vancouver or Victoria, then I
don't think that anyone who *chooses* to live downtown really has a basis
to complain about stuff like this. That's like moving next to an airport
and then complaining about the noise.

Is $150,000 expensive for housing in Hfx or something? You can't get
crap for that out here on the left coast.
