Premier Stephen McNeil extended congratulations today, Aug. 28, to the five Nova Scotians who will be invested into the Order of Nova Scotia.
“These outstanding individuals represent the best in environmental activism, community leadership, education, health care, entrepreneurism and literature that our province has to offer,” said Premier McNeil.
“On behalf of all Nova Scotians, I congratulate these extraordinary men and women. It is important to recognize that these recipients were nominated and chosen for this special recognition by their fellow Nova Scotians in tribute to their lasting contributions to our province.”
The 2015 Order of Nova Scotia recipients are: Dr. Margaret Macdonald Casey, Louis E. Deveau, Martin R. (Rudy) Haase, Sharon Hope Irwin and the late Alistair MacLeod.
The 2015 recipients will be recognized at the 14th investiture ceremony Sept. 30 at Province House.
