Just a few short weeks ago we hosted an event to honour the original founding members of the Canadian Lebanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Nova Scotia. We had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate the contributions of these original members in a celebration at Halifax’s new Central Library. With eleven of the founding members present in one of Halifax’s newest and most architecturally stunning buildings we were able to pay homage to the enduring legacy of these business leaders and be energized about the incredible future potential of our city.

As scions of an immigrant community that fled war and upheaval in the middle east only to find a new home and new opportunities in Canada we would be remiss not to comment on the heart breaking refugee crisis unfolding today. There are no easy solutions to this global humanitarian catastrophe nor is it obvious what role Canada should play. Thoughtfulness and prudence should rule the day. Canada certainly should again welcome many new Canadians but our national policy should focus on those who are most vulnerable and those who will fully and wholly embrace Canada and its tremendous opportunities.

Finally we are only weeks away from a federal election in Canada with three very distinct choices between the parties and their standard bearers who would be Prime Minister. I would encourage everyone to carefully consider how they exercise their right to vote bearing in mind that it is indisputable that small business is the engine of economic growth in Canada. A strong and vibrant Canadian economy is dependent on small businesses and entrepreneurs and it is imperative that our next Prime Minister understand and actively supports the business community across the country through pro-growth tax and regulatory policies. We are all so fortunate to live in the greatest country in the world, where our right and ability to vote is never in question and where the transfer of power is a peaceful celebration of democracy. Irrespective of which party you support in the election I would encourage everyone to honor the sacrifices of our veterans and to appreciate this right that so many around the globe are denied by casting your ballot.

There is a lawyer in town that is really making a name for himself – not because he has the aspirations of becoming the next Joe Jamail or F. Lee Bailey, but because he has the drive to do the best for his clients. Peter Zed tries to run his law practice at Cox & Palmer and his life in the same manner – making decisions based on honesty and integrity, with the confidence that he will ultimately benefit.

Peter was destined to become a lawyer. He was born and raised in Saint John, New Brunswick. Peter’s father (also Peter) is the son of a Lebanese-Canadian businessman. Together, he and two of Peter’s uncles ran their own firm that eventually merged with Cox & Palmer in 2013.

The room was filled with an impressive group of first generation Lebanese success stories, along with many colleagues and friends, on September 9th, 2015 at the Paul O’Regan Hall in the new Halifax library. All were present to celebrate a very momentous occasion – the original members of the Lebanese Chamber of Commerce were honoured by their contemporaries for their contribution and dedication to the original start-up of the Chamber movement.
