I herd that Tallships are happening again in Halifax this summer 2009. I love the parade of sails but there is little promotion of what Nova Scotia really has to offer including local art and craft. Tourists come from all over and you would expect the tourism industry to encourage local artisans to be around, to show the true colours of Nova Scotia. I want to walk down and see hand craft jewelery and paintings while I look at the marvelous ships but INSTEAD I see stuff made in china and cheep toys. I herd some artisans were kicked out by security gaurds last Tallships. They should pay the artisans to come down for events like this instaed of kicking them out!
