Kevin Tomlinson has a mystery to solve. While he, his wife, and several colleagues from Investors Group (IG) were away on a cruise, he received word from back home that there had been a “dusting of snow.” That might have been an understatement. It was actually a foot and a half. But that healthy heap of Nova Scotia winter was not the only surprise Tomlinson found upon his return. “When we got back from the cruise, my driveway was plowed,” he smiles. “One of my neighbours did it, but we haven’t figured out who yet.”
Originally from Whitby, Ontario, Tomlinson came to Nova Scotia in 2006 to take a regional director position with IG. “We liked the idea of coming to the East Coast,” he says. “We liked the lifestyle, the adventure.” Since then, he and his family have discovered many marvellous features of their new home. Yet, for Tomlinson, it is the people – people like his mysterious snow removing neighbour, his clients, and his fellow IG financial consultants – who have made the greatest impression. “The comments about how friendly the people are here are absolutely true,” he says.
