Take Us Along Winner

Burton Abel

Burton Abel of Painesville, Ohio, is this week's Take Us Along winner. He took East Ohio Auto & RV along to Nova Scotia, Canada, and is shown with the popular magazine at the welcome sign.

Nova Scotia means New Scotland in Latin. It is one of Canada's three Maritime provinces and is located on the Atlantic Ocean. It is the second smallest province in size in Canada, covering only 21,300 square miles, but is the second most densely populated province in the country with a population of over 921,000. Today it is called Canada's Ocean Playground because no spot in the providence is more than 42 miles from the Atlantic and it makes an ideal vacation spot. Nova Scotia was named in a 1621 Royal Charter that allowed the right to settle there. French colonists, however, established the first European settlement there in 1605, founding what has become known as Acadia. The British claimed the area in 1710 and the Treaty of Utrecht gave the land to England. Thanks for taking us along!
