Once again I am proud of our Liberal Government as we support local fire departments through the Emergency Services Provider Fund. This funding is available through application to fire departments across the province, as well as First Responders, Ground Search and Rescue Teams and Hazmat Organizations. Each applicant is eligible to apply for funding up to $20 000 once every three years and we recently announced approval of applications from 47 Emergency Service Providers to a total of $500 000.
The 2015-16 school year marks the start of many new and exciting changes in the classroom for students and teachers from Nova Scotia's Action Plan for Education.
Students and teachers will see first-hand that we are taking action to improve and modernize our education system. The first full year of the action plan benefits all students from Primary to Grade 12. The changes provide a solid foundation in math and literacy, more technology-based learning and new programs to support career education.
Summer Along The Shore….each year, from June to September, residents of the area, along with those “from away” who return home….join together to celebrate family and friends and the rich heritage of their communities. This year is no different….and Bass River recently celebrated Heritage Days at the museum grounds.
The community itself takes its name from the river that runs through it….the source being the Cobequid Hills and emptying into the Cobequid Bay. The first settlers were Judge James Fulton and his brother Samuel, and the homes they built are still standing on opposite sides of the river. Many descendents of these two settlers continue to live, either as full time residents or “cottagers” in Bass River.

Royal Canadian Legions play an important part in preserving and celebrating the history of our nation. They also undertake many projects which support local communities and community events.
Legions have been a gathering spot for anniversaries, dinner, Remembrance Day services and fundraisers. Members of the Legion contribute considerable time and energy and play a crucial role in supporting seniors and youth across the province.
On behalf of Municipal Affairs Minister Mark Furey and the Government of Nova Scotia, I was happy to announce funding for improvements to 18 Royal Canadian Legion Branches across the province.
