Halifax is the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. The city was founded in 1748 in an excellent natural harbour, well protected from the elements, and at the time the French Navy--important, as the city was founded before the Seven Years War. Halifax was a vital link for the Allied war effort in both World War I and World War II as supply convoys to cross the Atlantic Ocean formed there. In 1917, the city was devastated by a huge explosion created by the collision of two ships, creating one of the largest explosions until the first atomic bomb. To honor the relief to the city from the people of Boston during the aftermath of the explosion, Halifax sends a Christmas tree to Boston every year. The population of Halifax in 2011 was 390,096. [1] The city now is the centre of government for Nova Scotia, as well as a major Canadian naval base, and a large intermodal port.
