Episode 51: Downtown Halifax Covid 19 Report 12, June 8, 2021

We are back with another special COVID-19 episode. This episode was recorded via video conferencing as we are all working remotely during the third wave of this pandemic. So, we apologize in advance for any issues with the sound quality.

In this episode, we are joined by Paul MacKinnon, CEO of Downtown Halifax Business Commission, who will be discussing the recently launched Provincial Re-Opening Plan. Paul will also update us on the provincial advocacy efforts by 12 business improvement districts, including Downtown Halifax Business Commission.

On Biz Buzz, we’re going to talk about Patio Season in Downtown Halifax, Pups on Patios, Open City, the Patio Lanterns Festival, and the special giveaway from our 50th Downtown Lowdown episode. We also have lots of art in Downtown Halifax, including a new mural on the waterfront, the Self-Guided Downtown, and Art Argyle Fine Art’s Poster Pole Gallery.
