George Rizsanyi, AF Theriault and Son, and Universite Sainte-Anne were among 26 companies, associations and learning institutions that signed the “Come to life” charter document at the Celebration of Success gala dinner in Yarmouth on Thursday, Oct. 23. Charter members pledge to support the initiative and are ambassadors for Nova Scotia, telling the world about the advantages of living, working, learning and investing in the province. Premier Rodney MacDonald welcomed the new charter members. “Nova Scotia has everything you need to have a thriving career and a balanced life,” said Premier MacDonald. “The companies and organizations that have joined Come to life are telling the world that Nova Scotia is a great place to live, work, learn and invest.” The companies join 196 others including Bruce Guthro, who performed his “Come to life” theme song at the gala. “I am a proud Nova Scotian, born and bred. I am also a proud supporter of Nova Scotia Come to life,” said Mr. Guthro. “We need the world to know that Nova Scotia is a great place.” The gala dinner was an opportunity for business and community leaders to come together, network and celebrate their accomplishments.
