Look to the shires!

Regarding the Mayoral transport: What a dilemma!

May I make a constructive suggestion? How much would it cost to feed a Shire Horse with bales of hay and a grass field? Plus a nice two seater governor’s cart with hood in case of poor weather. Just think of the publicity round the county/country the visitors would come to Halifax in droves; cut the fumes, have manure for the parks and stop this mad rush to close the Library and bring in third rate stores?

Just a suggestion, it won’t be considered cause people have already decided, but just think. a beautiful Shire Horse on Mayoral Duty; no petrol, no fumes.
