Why "No Boats" Is A Good Thing
No Boats On Sunday pays homage to a time when Halifax was once Canada's busiest gateway port. With the hectic day-to-day routine this brought about, the hardworking locals decided they deserved some time to unwind, pull up their oars, and get back to the things they loved – like enjoying time with family and friends. With that, the ‘No Boats On Sunday’ policy was born. No boats meant no work.
