This act was called the Africville act. The Africville act was an African Canadian situated just northward of Halifax. The mayor never provided Africville with basic needs such as water, and public transportation. Africville was a poor black area, where black Canadians lived. In the late 1960’s Africville was destroyed and wrecked. The mayor trashed it down because Africville was starting to do downhill. The citizens did not have running and clean water, no streetlights, no public transportation, and no well built roads. Rather than the mayor trying to help improve Africville, he destroyed it. In 2010 the mayor apologized to people who lived in Africville for destroying their home on behalf of all of the residents who lived in the city of Halifax.
