The Rick Howe Show – Thursday, July 18, 2019

9 a.m.

Concerns are growing over a proposal that could see the elimination of several baseball fields at the Halifax Common. President of the Halifax Minor Baseball Association Bob Carter says this could impact hundreds of children. Annette Armitage of the Animal Rescue Coalition talks with us about ‘dangerous breeds.’ This comes as two dog owners in Clark’s Harbour are dealing with what they call ‘discriminatory bylaws.’ Peggy Cameron of the Development Options Halifax group says it is disappointed about how the city is handling development proposals for the corner of Spring Garden Road and Robie Street. She tells us why. Halifax City Council gave the okay this week to start work next year on designated bus lanes on Robie Street and on Young Street. We hear why this is a good move when we talk to Scott Edgar of the It’s More Than Buses group.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation says it wants more information about how much travel services at both ends of the province could cost taxpayers. Atlantic Director of the group Paige MacPherson gives us the details. We talk with Lindell Smith who is the councillor for the area impacted by a proposal in the Halifax Common Master Plan. While one proposal could see the elimination of baseball diamonds, Smith tells us it would mean more green space.
