The question isn't whether or not community centres are good, it's whether or not these places are able to legitimately support them both in terms of users and in terms of taxes paid to the HRM.

Places like Musquodoboit and Prospect would not have the services they do if they were in unincorporated rural NS. I suspect part of the reason for including the Eastern Shore in the HRM was to get the city to subsidize them.

It doesn't really upset me that much (to subsidize genuine rural areas somewhat) but when we have every rural or suburban councillor greedily trying to get as much for their district as possible and then trying to torpedo anything for the downtown there is a problem.
