    Canadian Xpress Monthly Fly-in: Capitals of the East Coast II

    This month, we continue our monthly fly-ins around Canada with part 2 of our 2-part fly-in tour of the Canada's East Coast.

    Fredericton is the capital of the Canadian province of New Brunswick. The city is situated in the west-central portion of the province along the Saint John River, which flows west to east as it bisects the city. The river is the dominant natural feature of the area. One of the main urban centers in New Brunswick, the city had a population of 58,220. It is the third-largest city in the province after Moncton and Saint John.

    Halifax, formally known as the Halifax Regional Municipality, is the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. It had a population of 403,131 in 2016, with 316,701 in the urban area centered on Halifax Harbour. Halifax is a major economic center in Atlantic Canada, with a large concentration of government services and private sector companies. Major employers and economic generators include the Department of National Defense, Dalhousie University, Saint Mary's University, the Halifax Shipyard, various levels of government, and the Port of Halifax. Agriculture, fishing, mining, forestry, and natural gas extraction are major resource industries found in the rural areas of the municipality.
