Bounded by scenic beauty, foaming Atlantic rollers and the surge of great tides, Canada's year-round eastern threshold - Nova Scotia - is full away for the future. With course drawn clear on a brand-new, multi-hued chart of industry and business, the province's 760,000 population is producing more than ever before. As new vigor and outlook spur technological advance and resource development, the province's steel, fish, auto, agricultural, mineral, electronics, construction, forestry, and other varied industries have boosted Nova Scotia's total value of production to $1,000,000,000 - solid economic indication that this picturesque province looks attractive also to hard-headed businessmen and modern industrialists. In Nova Scotia the tide of business is on the flood, the engines of industry at full-ahead.
