Yet, as I look out my window here at Lawrencetown Beach, the
salt marsh before me is wide and lush, healthy and green. The sea
is blue and the light sea wind has that familiar tinge of salt.
Given our resources, much as a result of the bounty of the sea, I
view Nova Scotia as one of the ultimate “sustainable” places on
earth. It is a province of abundance and, to a degree, balance. I’m
hoping that innovation, diligence and compassion will be part of
the formula that will help us to survive and adapt to the big
changes headed our way.
