The urban area of Halifax Regional Municipality is a major economic centre in eastern Canada with a large
concentration of government services and private sector companies. Halifax serves as the business, banking,
government and cultural centre for the Maritime region. Major employers and economic generators include
the Department of National Defence, as well as the Port of Halifax. The municipality has a growing
concentration of manufacturing industries and is becoming a major multi-modal transportation hub through
growth at the port, the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, and improving rail and highway connections.


Peggys Cove light house and the Atlantic Ocean


From its inception, the community's economy revolved around the fishery. However, tourism began
to overtake fishing industry in economic importance following the Second World War. Today, Peggys Cove
is primarily a tourist attraction, although its inhabitants still fish for lobster, and the community maintains
a rustic undeveloped appearance. The regional municipality and the provincial government have been
strict land-use regulations close to Peggys Cove, with most property development being prohibited.
Similarly there are restrictions on who can live in the community to prevent inflation of property values
for year-round residents.

Nova Scotia ノバスコシアとはラテン語でNew Scotland  を意味する。1973年、筆者がオンタリオ州に
居住していたとき、車でこの地を訪れている。三方を大西洋の海に囲まれ 、12月から3月までは低い
気温の日が続くが、夏の季節は海洋性の気候に恵まれ過ごしやすい。州都、ハリファックス市で、
乗っていた車のオンタリオ・プレートを見て、親しげに話しかけて来た初老の男性は オンタリオ州から
移り住んでいるそうであるが、「ここは良い土地なのであなた方も是非引っ越して来なさい」と勧めら
れたことをよく覚えている。多分、私どもを(移民)カナダ人と思ったのであろう。

ハリファックスの南西にPeggy's Cove という漁村がある。大西洋岸のフォトスポットとしても知られている。
すべてが絵になるような風景が広がっている。数人の子供たちの他、人影らしきものは見あたらず、さびれた
寒村の風情であったが、果たして今もそうであろうか


ノバスコシア州の北西端の島の突端近くに位置する国立公園が Cape Breton Highlands National Parkである。
大西洋岸に突き出た、長く連なる海岸線は遠く澄み切った空のかなたまで連なっており、天にも昇るような
気持で快適なドライブを堪能することが出来る。

カナダ Nova Scotia (ノバスコシア)州では2006年12月より、レストラン、バー、カジノ、プライベート
クラブ、学校、映画館、病院など公共施設内での喫煙を禁止している。さらに受動喫煙から子供たちを守る
ために、2007年12月、19才未満の子供がいる車内での喫煙を禁止する法律が成立した。2008年1月より
実施される。法律に違反すると 385ドル(2007年12月現在、1カナダドルは112円)の罰金が科せられる。
膨大な数の車の中をどうきめ細かくチェック出来るか難しい点も指摘されているが国民の健康面から歓迎す
べき法的規制である。同様の法律はブリッテシュコロンビア州、オンタリオ州でも提案されている。
