Subject: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Hi Ziners,

An interesting article from the Telegraph about Halifax, Nova Scotia in eastern Canada. The new budget air service from the UK to Canada, Zoom has flights to Halifax and makes Halifax a cheaper destination for Brits.

The title, "Welcome to a small but Titanic town" refers to the Titanic memorabilia in the maritime museum. There is a strong connection betwee Halifax and the ship. Most of the rescued went to Halifax and the cemetery has the grave of J. Dawson. Prices are in pounds sterling.

It has been some years since I've been in Halifax but it is a small but lively city with wonderful sights nearby. The article mentions Lunenburg, well worth visiting. We loved Cape Breton Island which is also in Nova Scotia. The fortress of Louisbourg, a living history museum is great and the Cabot Trail is renowned for its fabulous views.
