Nova Scotia is a province of Canada, on its Atlantic Coast.
This peninsula is proclaimed as `Canada's Ocean Playground'
O Canada! Where pines and maples grow.
Great prairies spread and lordly rivers flow.
From East to Western Sea,
How dear to us thy broad domain,
Thou land of hope for all who toil!
Thou True North, strong and free!
[National Anthem: Second Verse (J. S. Weir)]
