The term, originating in the underground alternative rock scene of Cape Breton Island, is in reference to entertainers who live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. A haligonian dick is someone who gets fellow artists who live only in their area signed to a label deal either on their own label or with a major, yet doesn't feel the need to support any act that comes from outside of the city.
"Those guys are like haligonian dick when they peep the technique. We'd like to get some of what they're givin' to the biz, but they're too busy only frontin' and jackin' up their homies."
