As the MLA for Colchester North, I'm pleased to provide this website as a useful and informative resource.
My committment as a MLA is to be open and approachable to all residents of Colchester North. I invite you to share your ideas, concerns and/or questions. Together we can seek solutions.
Let me begin by extending a welcome to Dr. Lisa MacKinnon, who has recently joined the staff of physicians providing health care to residents along the north shore. Lisa will bring the complement of physicians back up to four including Dr. Rob Bush, Dr. Dan MacDonald and Dr. Michael Glasgow.
Residents have been patient and sometimes frustrated with the speed of the recruitment process, however, I do want to congratulate all those who continue their efforts and who were successful in bringing Lisa to the community.
Birthdays are always special occasions to share with family and friends. Each year Maurice (Editor, Shoreline Journal) helps those along the shore who have reached the age of 90 come together to celebrate. For many of those who are 90+, it is a great opportunity to socialize.
As the MLA, I have participated in those celebrations and it is always a pleasure to join other elected officials at the Economy Rec Centre.
Your Liberal government is committed to improving Nova Scotia’s education system. That’s why we created the Council to Improve Classroom Conditions. We are striving to ensure the recommendations that the council provided be completed and addressed, the most recent being a new attendance policy.
Starting October 1st, this new policy will address the growing concern of student absenteeism in schools across Nova Scotia. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
It was with great pride that I joined the Lieutenant Governor for Nova Scotia, the Honourable Arthur J. LeBlanc, along with other dignitaries to officially unveil the monument recognizing the importance of Canadian Forces Station Debert (also known as Camp Debert).
My sincere congratulations to the members of the Debert Military History Society who work constantly to maintain and promote Debert’s military history. Through the Debert Military Museum they have a diverse collection of military memorabilia that attracts visitors to Nova Scotia and in particular, Colchester County. This museum would not be possible without the work of the Society’s members.
I am pleased to announce our Minister of Health and Wellness, Randy Delorey, is taking the time to travel across the province to meet with and listen to health care professionals who deliver quality care to Nova Scotians every day. I am very pleased that Tatamagouche and the Lillian Fraser CEC was chosen as one of those visits on August 29th and while there the Minister had a tour of the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital.
Making physical and community activities a part of our daily lives is very important. One of the ways our government provides support is through investments in the Recreation Facility Development Program. These investments help communities remain connected and vibrant. They are also part of the Culture Action Plan.
