Residents of a black community in Nova Scotia are hoping for progress this week in gaining title to their land, 200 years after their ancestors were placed on rocky plots without clear deeds. Dwight Adams, a volunteer with the group in North Preston area, says he and other members of a community group are anticipating that the province will announce soon how it will assist. (The Nova Scotia government provided land plots to black loyalists in the 1800s, but the Crown didn't provide land titles -- though it did for white settlers. Adams says up to one-third of residents in the community of 37-hundred people still don't have title to the land.)
