Way to go Halifax!!!

Halifax Doesnít Want Celine Dion
Celine Dion’s scheduled performance in Halifax has been called off due to negative comments about the singer that flooded local media, according to The Canadian Press. Dion’s husband and manager, Rene Angelil, said he has been deeply affected by the harsh comments that emerged after it was announced Dion would bring her extravagant show to Halifax’s outdoor park, known as the Common.
Apparently some Halifax residents were expecting rock’n’roll shows at the Common and were less-than-pleased to hear they would be seeing Dion rather than U2, for example.
Angelil singled out columnist David Rodenhiser of the Daily News for sparking the Celine-bashing. But Rodenhiser said the media has only reported the expressed opinions of local citizens. He reportedly argued that a successful Dion performance would help build Halifax’s reputation as a place for A-list artists.
Angelil said he has kept the brouhaha from reaching Dion in an effort to protect her feelings.
Halifax was among six Canadian cities booked on the ìTaking Chances World Tour,î which kicks off next August.
