Something else I will mention, Nova Scotia had really great souvenirs. I know that sounds silly, but it was actually hard to pick. I will have to post my finds later. Also, and more importantly, Halifax is really big on promoting local Folk Art. As a result, gift shops sold really amazing jewellery from brilliant Artists from the East Coast. Near Pier 21 (the big immigration Museum, because Pier 21 is where many of the Ships docked after bring people across the ocean) there are little shops featuring the work of Arts and Crafts students from the area. The campus is also in this neighbourhood. It's a really fascinating cultural experience.
