2013-09-10 - Motor Vehicle Act Updates - Upcoming Election
As you are well aware, the car hobbyist community in Nova Scotia has been advocating for some changes to the Motor Vehicle Act to better handle the issues of antique, modified and owner-built vehicles. The wish of most of the people that I have talked to is to have a more consistent and realistic set of registration guidelines so that owners know what to expect when contemplating building such vehicles or registering one of them.
In recent contact with the Registry of Motor Vehicles, I have been advised that despite the submissions made by various people, there has been no progress in moving these changes forward. Essentially, nothing has changed in the last year.
With the provincial election call over the weekend, I think it is time that we talked to the candidates and made them aware of the concerns we have. So, if you think there is a concern, please mention it to the candidates when they come looking for your vote.
Once the new government is elected, we'll ratchet up our contact with various levels to bring these changes to a successful conclusion.

2013-02-21 - The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro has landed in Halifax
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the "The Works" VIP opening on Wednesday night in Halifax. What an awesome job they did with the construction. We were in the empty space a few short month\'s ago with the floor jack hammered up and a few hanging light bulbs and nothing more.
The food we had was fantastic and if you like onion rings... I MEAN IF YOU LOVE ONION RINGS, these were the best I have ever had. I can\'t believe someone in Halifax did not know how to make them like that. Anyway, You have just got to check out the newest franchise in Halifax. And by the way. don\'t expect to leave hungry... you may have to save dessert for later on in the evening. Congratulations Jody & Al on your new venture.
(Here I am with the new Halifax Works franchise owners Al & Jody Garner)
