Anyone know a good place in Halifax?
Anything is cool, if you live there now and feel like helping someone out, I'd love to know the ropes of the city, I'm moving there next year.

Hey, I am sorry I don't know any good place but this topic caught my eye. I am from PEI, your sister province, and I am trying to squat.

I hope you find goodluck.

where you live?
don´t know a thing about that city now, but about 15 years ago it was by far the best punk scene in Canada for whatever that´s worth. Probably still some ghosts around

good book to read while you're there... depressing.. but good... will give you a good idea of the crazy history of halifax... they say this explosion was the second most powerful manmade explosion to the first atomic bomb.

Curse of The Narrows: The Halifax Disaster of 1917

and Cod by Mark Kurlansky could maybe shed some light on the fishing culture way up thayah...

My advice? get the hell up to north sydney and take the ferry to Port aux Basques, Newfoundland. Best time to go is late may, early june. Bring bicycles! or i know a few cats who rode the rails... and i hitched.

dont know much more about NS though... good luck!

I was there last summer. It seems like theres a fair bit of squatable houses. Up top of the hill near the citadel.
I just slept outside when i was there though, so im not much help.

I saw one punk while I was there and the kid was from where im from, hamilton, and trying to get home.

He was flyin a sign that said kick a punk for a dollar, 2 dollars I wont kick back.
I was shootin the shit with the kid, then this meat head comes over with short man syndrome and gives em 2 bucks. Then just wallops this kid in the leg and dropped em haha
It was some ju-jitsu shit haha

I can guarentee he wont be flyin that sign again haha and reason enough for no one else to try it.

Downfall to Halifax is finding a store that sells ciggarettes...and smokes are about 14 bucks a fuckin pack

Ahahaha, that's fucking ridiculous, smokes and the kid who got kicked.

Yeah, my buddy was down there last summer too, you might have ran into him, he goes by Thumper. I'm going to get my friends who are down there now to search out a good squat for when I get there.

I was there about 6 years ago in the summer. In the town where the ferry is, there seemed to be a lot going on. Halifax was one of my favorite cities in NS.
Check out the Bra' Dor lakes in Sydney, also. I was diggin' that area. It tripped me out seeing fatass jellyfish in lakes too.

I'm usually not so into crust punk (more into 80's hardcore- Reagan Youth, Circle Jerks, etc.), but I checked them out, and their pretty sweet.

Fuck yeah, I hitched the cabot trail last summer. Cape Breton is up there with the most beautiful place in Canada.
Kids and adults from Sydney know how to fuckin party!
