RESOLUTION NO. 622 Re: Bob Piers Truro and area Olympic torchbearer

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

Whereas the 106-day Olympic Torch Relay will visit more than 1,030 communities in every province and territory across Canada on its way to Vancouver for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games; and

Whereas Bob Piers of Truro continues to volunteer as coach of the Cobequid Educational Centre's girls volleyball team that has captured 10 provincial high school championships over the past 13 years; and

Whereas the Olympic Torch will be arriving in Truro on November 17, 2009, and Bob Piers has been selected to be the Truro and area's official torchbearer, to carry the torch and light the celebratory cauldron on that day;

Therefore be it resolved that the Nova Scotia Legislature congratulates Bob Piers on being selected as the Truro and area Olympic torchbearer and for lighting the cauldron on November 17th, 2009.

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.
