Guardian Angels Halifax Closes
The Halifax franchise of the Guardian Angels closed its doors early last year, due to lack of interest from officials and the community.
The street vigilante group opened up shop in December 2007, with the usual media fanfare flamed by degenerate dirtbag and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa. The Chronicle Herald reports the franchise initially had 20 “potential recruits” back then, more than the 16 required to properly run an outfit.
Mayor Peter Kelly was at first a supporter of the Angels opening up shop in Halifax. That enthusiasm quickly subsided when Police Chief Frank Beazly turned sour on the effort, in no small part due to an interview the top cop had with The Right Perspective about what Sliwa and his Angels are really all about.
Sliwa told The Chronicle Herald that the franchise’s last patrol was late last year in the Highfield Park area of Dartmouth. The most people the group has was 12, he admitted.
Still, Sliwa does not blame anyone for the franchise’s demise.
“We just lost traction,” he said. “We just were not able to maintain the leadership (in Halifax) – the consistent leadership – and we had too many changes within the course of the first six months alone.”
