SmartCity Business Show – Episode 13 in Review

Bravo! This episode of SmartCity really had me laughing. Craig Layton didn’t hold back when he took to the streets of Halifax to talk with visitors and residents. We asked the same question we’ve been asking throughout this series, “Why Halifax?” Haligonia-title-still.jpg_190

The kind nature and approachability of residents truly showcases what it is like to live, work and play in Halifax. Simply from watching the final episode of this series of SmartCity Business Show, you can see that this holds true. Although, apart from the friendly people, Halifax certainly has a lot to offer.

We’re building a reputation of talent, hospitality and growth, and Halifax is being noticed all around the world for these attributes. It’s no wonder why we’re so proud to call this city home. When I say I’m from Halifax, I say it proudly; when I ask a visitor what they think of Halifax, I only expect to hear great things; and when I leave to visit another city, I can’t wait to come home.

If you want to get to know Halifax, simply take a walk along our boardwalk, through our parks or down Spring Garden Road – you will find friendly faces, inspiration, talent or an opportunity for growth in every corner. With six highly regarded universities, beautiful scenery, growing industries and a busy harbour – Halifax has it all. Craig says it best, “Can’t get much better than that!” This was a fantastic way to end the series; the voice of Halifax confirms that we truly are a smart city.
