Government of Nova Scotia
Orders In Council
December 1996

96-874  to  96-938


Note: In some of these Orders In Council, mention is made of a physical
measurement, usually a length or distance, or an area, which is given in
Imperial units, the measurement system in general use in Canada until the
1970s.  The Imperial system was abandoned some decades ago, and these
obsolete units of measure are now unfamiliar to a considerable proportion
of the population.  As time goes by, more and more people will be uncertain
of the correct interpretation or translation of Imperial into modern measures.
To assist the reader's understanding, where Imperial measures occur in the
text, immediately following I have inserted, in [square brackets] the modern
equivalent.  For example, 6,847 square feet [636 square metres].

It should be understood that these insertions are not part of the original text.
Any errors in these conversions are my responsibility.
