The Langille Family | Raising Haligonians

Paula and Chris Langille moved to Halifax for university and ended up staying here to raise their families as Haligonians: "I hope their values of kindness, politeness and of giving back to their community - whether helping a friend or neighbour or more in an organized format become a part of their being. I hope that being a Haligonian, for them, elicits a positive, fun image of who they are and what this city offers."
