My family and I have been visiting Nova Scotia for more
than 20 years.  We have strong friendships with kind
people, and communities. And we have a deep affinity for
the land, and the sea surrounding the province.  When we
cross the border on the way in we sing "Hello to Nova Scotia,"
and on the way out "Farewell to Nova Scotia" (the proper
words to the song we love.) And we always feel brokenhearted
to be leaving.

The current news which I spoke about yesterday is devastating
and just gets worse.  We can't ignore the deep sense of
loss the province is experiencing with so many lives taken

Nova Scotia our hearts are with you.
