The radio-ad-salesman-turned-developer-turned-city-councillor-turned-entrepreneur was one of Halifax’s larger-than-life characters. While I didn’t always — often, hardly at all — agree with his views, he was inevitably a charming, fun-to-be-around person who wore his heart, and his heartaches on his sleeve.
I wrote this profile of him for Halifax Magazine in 1978 at a time when he was trying — and failing — to convince Halifax city council to allow him to develop Time Square, a downtown office project opposite Citadel Hill and the Town Clock.
