Note: Just what part do these Orders In Council play in the everyday working of the Government of Nova Scotia?  The best explanation I've seen is that written by the great Eugene Forsey:

Parliamentary Government, Its Origins

"The Governor General (and each provincial Lieutenant Governor) governs through a cabinet, headed by a prime minister or premier (the two terms mean the same thing)..."  Forsey says little or nothing about Orders In Council, but he says a lot about how a cabinet (provincial or federal) works, and these Orders In Council are the legal written record of the Nova Scotia cabinet's daily decisions about the details of running the government. Forsey explains what a cabinet is, who decides who is in the cabinet and what job each member has, how long a cabinet stays in power, and similar aspects of the Canadian system.
