The City is working on a Higher Order Transit Strategy. (Scroll down to the "Transit" section)

I don't know how, given the current population growth, infrastructure, and low bus ridership, Halifax could possibly bring up its ridership numbers significantly without bringing in new kinds of transit.

Major transit infrastructure also takes a long time to bring online. If the federal government kicked in $1B for LRT tomorrow it would still take 5-10 years to come online. During that time there would be 50,000+ new residents who would largely need to rely on the already overtaxed road network.

@Hfxgov is reporting on Twitter today that out of the 35 major Canadian cities, Halifax had the second highest growth rate from July 1, 2019 to July 1st 2020. We added more than 9000 people in 12 months for a 2.1% growth rate. Contrast this with Toronto which lost a net of 50,000 people over the same period.

This puts Halifax on track to reach 550,000 by 2031 according to Hfxgov.

The best time to start was yesterday, the next best time is today. Why wait? What is HRM's holdup?

As of July 1st 2020, according to the government of Canada, Halifax saw high growth despite the pandemic, we're 448,544 for the mentioned date, a slight decrease to 9015 new dwellers but still solid.

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/...020003-eng.htm

Assuming the rate of growth Halifax should have 457,559 for 7/1/2021

And east hants will be added to the Halifax CMA for the 2021 census

There’s a news story going around to the effect that Toronto lost 50,000 people, but it’s a strange mis-reading of the stats. Toronto had a net intraprovincial loss with the rest of Ontario, amounting to 50,000 people. That’s typical—last year it was 46,000. Other components of population growth still saw Toronto gain 93,000 people last year. Halifax did grow significantly faster on a per-capita basis, though.

Yeah. News outlets are not giving the full story on Toronto. Just what fits the Covid-19 narrative.

Turner Drake & Partners released their December 2020 office report for metro Halifax: https://www.turnerdrake.com/survey/attachments/222.pdf

Not sure if we have some more appropriate office thread somewhere.

It surprised me. About 500,000 square feet of positive absorption downtown in 2020, which is the equivalent of filling up the Maritime Centre. About 200,000 square feet added to inventory which is just over 5 million in total.
