Well, it seems our winter is warming up a bit and no doubt, spring is right on its heels.
We had a successful fall session, where our House of Assembly continued to work hard on a fiscal plan that will have many benefits for Nova Scotians, both now and in the long-term. Ensuring stability for our future, and not just the now, is fundamental and our government is committed to achieving that.
Among many pieces of legislation we passed, we developed an efficient electricity plan with stable rates, established a College of Paramedics, extended compassionate care leave to 28 weeks, and aligned the offices of the Maritime provinces to ensure Nova Scotia can be a competitive and prosperous province.
Also, make sure to save the date for my town hall, Thursday March 31.This is a free, public forum where we can discuss provincial issues that matter the most to you. Based on survey feedback, our kick-off topic will be job creation & the economy. Keep posted on my social media for details on the time and location of this event. I hope to see you there!
As always, I encourage you to get in touch with us at the constituency office. With your help, we can further build our community, and make Halifax even stronger and more vibrant. I look forward to meeting you, learning about your ideas, and hearing your concerns.
Together, I know we’ll succeed.
