Prime Minister of the Canadian Nova Scotia Province, Stephen McNeill, and two of his Cabinet Members of Lebanese origin, Lina Metlej Diab and Patricia Arab, visited Wednesday the Gebran Khalil Gebran Museum in Bsharre and the Cedar Forest, accompanied by the Lebanese Consul in Halifax, Wadih Fares.
The Canadian officials were warmly welcomed by "Strong Republic" Parliamentary Bloc Member, MP Joseph Ishaq, Mayor of Bsharre Freddie Keyrouz, and Museum Director Joseph Geagea, where they toured the various parts of the Museum and left a tribute word in its guestbook of honor.
McNeil and his accompanying delegation also planted trees in the Cedar Forest, receiving certificates in their names.
A luncheon banquet was later held in their honor at the Military Officers' Club in AL-Arz, during which the Gebran National Commission Head, Joseph Fenianos, presented them with souvenir gift tokens symbolizing the Museum.
It is to note that the delegation members are currently visiting Lebanon to participate in the Foreign Affairs and Emigrants' Conference organized by the Ministry, where McNeill will be delivering a speech on behalf of the Province of Nova Scotia.
