Representatives of several Nova Scotia universities will learn about our emerging economy and leading edge technologies, particularly in the environmental sector. “We have a great story to tell,” said Premier MacDonald. “We want Nova Scotians living away from home to be aware of our many successes and the potential we have to achieve so much more. And, we’re inviting them to be a part of that success.” The 91 dignitaries will then join Nova Scotia’s business and community leaders, and elected officials for a performance of DRUM! at the National Arts Centre.
