Please support Halifax's bid to host the Canadian National Portrait Gallery by signing this petition.
The petition will be forwarded/delivered to all municipal politicians in Halifax, the corresponding provincial and federal representatives too. This is an important and worthy venue of the arts in Canada and internationally.
