Mounties always get their man - but sometimes just to give him a hat

A cavalcade of Nova Scotians, including red-suited Mounties, the deputy premier of the province and the percussion band Squid, will greet no doubt bemused commuters 7 to 9:30 on Thursday morning outside Park Street station, handing out "I Heart Nova Scotia" toques, um, caps and just generally thanking Bostonians for all that help we sent their way back in 1917. They'll then stick around for the lighting of the Nova Scotia Christmas tree on the Common, in a ceremony that starts at 6 p.m.

Post fixed as I once again prove my inability to match dates with days.

Wow, eh?

I can't wait to see how many drummers drumming and mounties mounted they send in 2017!

There is no end to our gratitude, but we don't want to go overboard.

Nova Scotia's gratitude

The people of Nova Scotia (all the Maritimes really) are very gracious and kind but the help that Boston provided was very much needed. The explosion was followed by a nor'easter - the people heading north were digging out the tracks to get there quicker. Info on explosion below. One of the anchors was blown over a mile inland and has been left in place as a monument.

It's considered an honor to donate the tree every year.
