The Coast - Doors Open - - Front Page -

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.
