As the Member of Parliament for our awesome city, I’m thrilled to join you in marking the 5th year of Doors Open Halifax.
Now, let’s get out there!
This weekend, we’re throwing our city’s doors wide open, offering an insider’s look into spaces of historical, contemporary and architectural significance.
Doors Open is the perfect opportunity to pause and indulge in the storylines that make Halifax what it is today, while offering a glimpse into where we’re headed together.
The mix of venues, new and old, makes this a remarkable experience, and it captures so well these two complementary values that shape Halifax: a city of people who are committed to preserving our heritage while simultaneously pushing every day to build a more vibrant, more prosperous Halifax for everybody.
That dynamic interplay sets us apart as a city, and makes us unique. Doors Open Halifax celebrates that, and over the course of the weekend, I hope you will too.
I send my most sincere congratulations to the whole team at Doors Open Halifax. You’ve devoted countless hours, some of you for five years now, to making sure this weekend is a remarkable experience for Haligonians – and every year, that hard work pays off. On behalf of our city, thank you.
