Cabinet Room Renamed to Honour Veterans
by
EB Lapointe

The former meeting room of the provincial cabinet in Nova Scotia's Province House has been renamed in recognition of the role veterans have played in Nova Scotia. The room will now be known as the Veterans Room.

'In remaining the room, we are honouring the significant role veterans have played in protecting our democracy," Speaker of the House of Assembly, Murray Scott, said November 9th. "The former cabinet room is an important part of the democratic process. It's where ideas and policies were put forward on behalf of Nova Scotia for years. Debaters in the room have played a key role in how we have grown in Nova Scotia."

Renovations have been made to reflect the heritage of Province House, including the acquisitions and restoration of period furnishings. An exhibit honouring the veterans is now on display until the end of December.

The room will be used for government and legislative events, meetings, and ceremonies.

When not in use, the room will be open Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m..
