RANS Awards Dinner

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending the Restaurant Association of Nova Scotia (RANS) Awards Dinner on behalf of the Minister of Agriculture, Keith Colwell, MLA.

Nova Scotia has premium-quality agri-food products on the market including fruit, seafood, wine and so many more. Agriculture is a key driver of economic opportunity for our rural communities. That is why it is so important that we support our local businesses.

I was so delighted to be able to give Governor’s Pub & Eatery the Local Hero Award. This award is given to the restaurant the best embraces the ‘buy local’ spirit, by serving and promoting local food and beverage products. It was a pleasure to meet the owner and her parents who established the restaurant in the 1970s.

I had such a wonderful evening filled with amazing people and delicious food. I am so proud of our innovative restaurant and beverage sector in Nova Scotia.
