This week, we welcome Jane’s Walk organizer and candidate for city council, Sam Austin. He talks the walk and discusses development, since that’s all anybody’s talking about as of late.
Also, development! Lucky north end Haligonians are thrilled with the promise of a shiny new parking lot where their homes once stood. This is thanks to the benevolence of the Steele Auto Group, a company synonymous with progressive values.
While a few naysayers have taken to the internet to voice their hatred of progress via satire, we at the Halifax Examiner rise above the chatter. We take no stock in the obviously fabricated stories of Steele Auto Group CEO Rob Steele drowning kittens in the Northwest Arm. Nor do we believe he singlehandedly masterminded 9/11. And we certainly don’t believe he authorized the building of a secret genetic laboratory in the back room of Colonial Honda where they’re creating clones of Gloria McCluskey to ensure she’ll be on City Council for all eternity. Those stories are obviously untrue and we’re sure of it because we know how satire works.

That McCluskey joke is both side-splitting hilarious, but also the thing nightmares are made of.
So they can afford a high- price lawyer to pen a nasty letter to a guy trying to get a chuckle out of the situation. So I certainly will never buy a car from Mr. Steele’s group of companies and they don’t need my business.
