Attention All Newfi…Er…Newfoundlanders! “#NewfieLaneGate” #Sackville

http://m.thewesternstar.com/section/2013-09-17/article-3392310/Halifax-response-to-naming-of-Newfie-Lane-astounds-ex-patriate/1

So Sackville has a “Newfie Lane” and a lady complained about it. I am not from NFLD so I can’t really comment much. I will leave it up to people from the Rock.

  Can I call it “The Rock”? LOL
I have recently taken heat for the Sackvegas nickname and I think you all know how I feel about fun nicknames. I hope this lady knows that there is a “Newfie Lane” or “Newfie Corner” at every campground around here for seasonal campers.
Anyway, I would really like to hear from actual Newfoundlanders about this. It’s your issue and if it is offensive then that’s fine by me.

About Jeff Nielsen

For people who love Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia! A lot of us lovingly call it “Sack-Vegas” which I personally find hilarious. I hope to have this column be a place for us to discuss our hometown, poke fun at ourselves (nothing too derogatory about our town though), post some old or current pics….whatever we want to do with it.
