    You should specify in the article title that this pertains to Nova Scotia. When it popped up in my news feed I didn’t fully understand whether this is a federal tax credit or a specific province, until I saw Nova Scotia mentioned further down and dug back to the preceding post about the Nova Scotia budget. Just a thought.
