The more I look at it, the more I realize the planning/social situation in Halifax is identical to Ottawa's, only one third the size. Our limit here seems to be 28 stories, theirs is 12.

Just a look at this page from the Halifax forum shows absolutely everything you see in Ottawa, from "save the viewplane" people, to the muddied and confused use of the word 'heritage', to the "no-height-at-all-costs" mindset. It's actually jarring.

Reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode with Roddy McDowell titled 'People are the Same Everywhere'.
