"It is an honour being named flag bearer for the closing ceremonies at the Canada Games," said athlete Jared Goad.  "I was unexperienced and nervous at my first Games in 2011, but I am here now as a leader with my team as well as with all Team Nova Scotia athletes.  I am looking forward to sharing the great experience of the Games with all of them."
