RESOLUTION NO. 2535 - November 27, 2015
Mr. Speaker, I hereby give notice that on a future day I shall move the adoption of the following resolution:
Whereas students and teachers from more than 235 schools across the province are here in Halifax today to celebrate We Day; and
Whereas We Day Atlantic Canada is bringing student leaders together to celebrate how they are effecting positive change in our world through impressive and significant accomplishments, such as the students at Riverside Education Centre who raised money to build a school in Haiti or the students, staff, and families from Dwight Ross Elementary, St. Mary's Elementary, Pine Ridge Middle School, Berwick and District School, and West Kings who collected 2,610 pounds of food to "stuff a bus" and needed a second bus to hold it all; and
Whereas children can and are making a difference, and in many instances are inspiring adults to take a stand on global or local issues;
Therefore be it resolved that all members of this Legislature join the We Day celebrations, not only today but year-round, and inspire young leaders in their communities to create change in our local and global communities.
Mr. Speaker, I request waiver of notice and passage without debate.
We are now in the festive season and at no other place is this more evident than the Village of Tatamagouche. Once the Oktoberfest is over and Remembrance Day is fully acknowledged in the community, business owners and residents turn their minds to decorating for the holiday season. In addition to the decorations which light up the streets in Tatamagouche, there are many festive activities planned to help the Village celebrate.
I was pleased to make a special announcement in the community of Lower Onslow recently at the Lower Onslow Community Centre. This is not my first time in this facility, nor do I expect this to be my last. As I have watched this building transform from a church into a community centre, I am amazed and proud of the community spirit that has allowed that to happen.
A team of volunteers has been the driving force behind that transformation and that team needs to be congratulated for their ability to repurpose what could have been an abandoned building into a centre for community use. Our government is committed to assisting communities where that interest, ambition and drive helped to make projects successful.
Throughout the holiday season we are constantly reminded of the importance of communities and at no place is it more evident than “along the shore”.
Christmas celebrations, baking and craft sales, school concerts, donations to needy families and brightly decorated homes and businesses help to make the true meaning of Christmas more evident.
Being “on the other side of the counter” is a great learning experience for all of us and I want to thank the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia and in particular, Fulton Pharmacy Limited, Tatamagouche, for giving me such a great opportunity to be a learner and more fully understand the role pharmacists play in our province.
