RESOLUTION NO. 376 Re: Viola Robinson named to the Order of Nova Scotia

MS. LENORE ZANN: Mr. Speaker, I hereby give notice that on a future day I shall move the adoption of the following resolution:

Whereas Viola Robinson of Greenfield has been a long-time advocate for the people and for bringing Native and non-Native peoples together; and

Whereas Viola has worked continuously for the advancement of Aboriginal treaty rights in Nova Scotia and across Canada; and

Whereas Viola Robinson's persistence helped lead her to having been named to the Order of Nova Scotia; and

Whereas Viola Robinson has now been named to the Order of Nova Scotia;

Therefore be it resolved that all members of this House congratulate Viola Robinson upon her being named to the Order of Nova Scotia and thank her for her efforts on behalf of all Aboriginal peoples of Canada.

Mr. Speaker, I request waiver of notice.

MR. SPEAKER: There has been a request for waiver. Is it agreed? It is agreed. Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay. The motion is carried.
