    Good thing - Halifax will host the Canada Winter Games soon, with partcipantes from across the country:

    "The Halifax 2011 Canada Games will take
    place from February 11 to 27. The 18 days of
    events associated with the Games will feature
    3,600 participants in 20 sports as well as
    many arts and cultural activities. More than
    5,000 volunteers will be engaged to deliver
    an exceptional experience for the participants,
    spectators, sponsors, media, and
    funding parties."
