PREMIER’S OFFICE–Nova Scotia Supports Humanitarian Aid for Lebanon —————————————————————– Nova Scotia will provide $1 million to the Lebanese Red Cross to support those affected by the Beirut explosion.
“We are all seeing the devastating impact of the tragedy in Beirut,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “The Lebanese community has deep roots in Nova Scotia. Our hearts go out to Lebanese-Nova Scotians, their families and loved ones and all those affected by the explosion. We stand with you and are keeping you in our thoughts.”
The Lebanese Red Cross Society’s mission is to provide relief to victims of natural and human disasters and it helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies, and to reduce the suffering of the most vulnerable.
Quick Facts: — United Nations agencies have warned of a humanitarian crisis in Lebanon following the devastating explosion at a portside warehouse on Aug. 4 — the Canadian government is contributing up to $5 million in humanitarian aid, including $1.5 million to the Lebanese Red Cross to provide emergency medical services, shelter and food
Since being elected to govern Nova Scotia in 2013, our Liberal government has expanded spending on Education by about 30%.
This new funding has allowed us to put new resources into the classroom. We have added over 900 new teachers and added new non-teaching positions to improve education for the kids by lowering the size of classes.
Our Liberal Government has done all of these things while balancing the provincial budget!
84 new pre-primary classes were announced yesterday by the Education Minister Zach Churchill.
This is a list of the schools added to the program in the Halifax Area.
