Redlining: With a Neoliberal Twist
Redlining, with a twist. Redlining, achieved thanks to the help of freeways that cut through the heart of a community. Could’ve been written about Dartmouth and our beltway, the 111, now used to keep certain neighborhoods segregated from others (North End Dartmouth from Dartmouth Crossing, Gaston Road from Baker Drive).
Redlining in illegitimate HRM isn’t necessarily about race (anymore) – now it’s based on income and or partisanship, with a little help from the Province of Nova Scotia and its freeways.
