Just received this welcome news that I have re-appointed to the Halifax Design Review Committee for another two years. On this committee I get to work with 11 other talented volunteers to make sure the quality of architecture in our downtown continues to improve as we create more and more opportunity for people to live and work in the urban core. Especially sweet as I helped to establish this committee, and the downtown plan it administers.

Just over 50 million texts, tweets, calls & shares so far! Outstanding work, everyone. Keep it up by sharing our Facebook post of Howie Mandel (you can find that here: ow.ly/I3UNn) and we'll donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives in Canada. You can also follow our progress here: letstalk.bell.ca/en/ (updated every half hour). #BellLetsTalk.

Stop Gap Parker Street Furniture and Food Bank are building ramps to provide better accessibility to local businesses. It is an initiative out of the Mayor’s Office in partnership with Halifax Regional Municipality, Parker Street Workshop, and the business improvement districts. NEBA member Hali Deli - Old World Delicatessen was the first to receive a custom built ramp just before Christmas. The ramps are great for businesses with single stepped storefronts and while they won’t solve all the accessibility issues in North End, it is a step in the right direction. The hope is it will get people talking about accessibility and the design challenge. If you are a business with single stepped storefront and are interested in a ramp, please contact Patty (patty@gonorthhalifax.com) for details. Businesses receiving a ramp are asked to contribute a $25 donation to the Parker Street Workshop to cover the cost of materials.

As part of our platform during the 2013 election campaign, Liberals committed to conducting a broad review of our tax system and creating a long-term plan for growth. An independent review of our tax system has been completed and presented to government.

As Minister of Finance, I made a commitment to thoroughly review these recommendations and consult with Nova Scotians, businesses and organizations. That's why I'm holding public consultations to discuss the recommendations in the tax review, and I'm inviting you to attend.

January 20, 2015
6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Mount Saint Vincent University
Rosaria Multi-Purpose Room (R302)
166 Bedford Highway, Halifax

This input will be critical as we work towards building the 2015/2016 budget. If you can't make it in person to the session, I encourage you to email your thoughts to: taxreview@novascotia.ca

I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
