Mayor Extends HRM's Best Wishes to Ellen Page

(Friday, February 22/08)-- The Office of the Mayor sent the following telegram to Nova Scotian actress Ellen Page who is in Hollywood this weekend, extending best wishes to her on behalf of Regional Council and the residents of HRM for her success at the 2008 Academy Awards.


Dear Ms. Page:

On behalf of Halifax Regional Council and the citizens of Halifax Regional Municipality, I am pleased to extend our sincere congratulations and best wishes to you as you prepare for the Academy Awards this Sunday.

Your outstanding portrayal as Juno has earned you a well-deserved place among a small and very select group of distinguished actors. Indeed, to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress is a tremendous achievement. While all of HRM is hoping and expecting that you will earn the Oscar this weekend, we want you to rest assured that we are truly proud of you and your many accomplishments to date, regardless of the outcome.

We are honoured that you have also chosen to live, learn and work here in HRM for some time now. You are a truly a great ambassador for HRM and for all of Nova Scotia—your immense talent, not to mention your down-to-earth attitude and friendly Maritime manner, make us all proud to call you one of our own.

Good luck on Sunday night—your many, many fans at home will be cheering for you!

Respectfully, I remain


Peter J. Kelly


Mayor Peter Kelly
