This from a just received e-mail, again shows why Halifax is doing well in the economic climate, basically sheltered from the Storm!


“Non-residential construction activity is expected to be an important driver for the Atlantic economy in 2009. A recent

Statistics Canada survey predicts that growth in capital investment spending will be highest in Newfoundland and

Labrador and Nova Scotia this year. Projects that will drive growth include the Deep Panuke natural gas project

in Nova Scotia along with Newfoundland and Labrador’s White Rose expansion and the Voisey’s Bay nickel

processing facility. Activity in New Brunswick will be down due to the completion of construction on the LNG facility

and pipeline.”
