TRURO - What's your name?
Defence Minister Peter MacKay welcomed many of the dignitaries to Thursday's announcement. But there was a slight slip- up.
After mentioning federal and provincial officials, MacKay, who represents the neighbouring federal riding of Central Nova, moved onto the municipal officials, including "our two mayors, Bob and Bob."
A hush went through the audience before MacKay tried to correct with "Bill and Bill" before the third time was a charm with "Bill and Bob."
"Now we got it right," he said with a little chuckle.
Truro Mayor Bill Mills shared a tip to keep things straight.
"Just for those of you who are having a tough time to remember who the mayors of this region are, just remember Billy Bob," he said during a light-hearted moment.
