Who is Bruce F. Holland

Bruce was born and raised in Shad Bay on the Prospect Road in a family of eight. Educated in the public-school system Bruce attended the old Halifax Regional Vocational School after graduating High School and then went on to attend Dalhousie University.

These were but a few of the improvements to things like playgrounds, ball fields, soccer fields, boat launches and much more to numerous to list, across many communities.
