Nominations are being accepted to recognize people who have acted bravely, risking their lives to help others.
Nova Scotia's Medal of Bravery will be rewarded to a Nova Scotian again this year, which is the seventh year the award will be given.
‚ÄúEvery year, some Nova Scotians go above and beyond, even at risk to their own safety, in order to help those in need,‚ÄĚ said Premier Stephen
McNeil in a news release.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a privilege to recognize these selfless individuals.‚ÄĚ
