      Nova Scotia on Face Book. To a Nova Scotian there's no place like home. It's hard to explain but whenever we are away it's like some strange force keeps tugging on our heart strings to come home. I believe it's a genetic thing evolving from generations of living by the sea and sailing the sea's. That's why we work so hard and play so hard. Voices Black Theatre Ensemble, Halifax, Nova Scotia. 25 likes. A multi-arts theatre and storytelling performance company dedicated to the professional presentation of African Nova Scotian and African.

      Artists in Nova Scotia's urban scene are pushing for a new association to better support and recognize their work. They say existing organizations are failing them. If you can, please support the Nova Scotia Advocate so that it can continue to cover issues such as poverty, racism, exclusion, workers’ rights and the environment in Nova Scotia. A pay wall is not an option, since it would exclude many of our readers who don’t have any disposable income at all. We rely entirely on one-time donations and a tiny but mighty group of dedicated monthly sustainers.

        And since reading Lawrence Hill's epic novel The Book of Negroes, about a West African woman enslaved in the United States before moving to Nova Scotia . I'm singing this petition because I don't believe the rcmp did enough to stop this man from steeling, killing and destroying peoples lives and there's way more than 22 victims here.
