Happy Holidays - 2014 !

We are now into the holiday season with Christmas shopping, Christmas baking, craft sales, church services, Christmas concerts and homes and businesses well decorated. All of these activities provide opportunities for us to celebrate with family and friends.

Christmas is also a time for giving. Children are excited and wait in anticipation for the gifts that they will receive on Christmas morning. The happiness and excitement shows in their faces. It is important however, to remember that not all children are fortunate enough to experience this happiness and excitement and many of those children are here in our own communities.

Many of you do take this opportunity to “make” Christmas for the less fortunate. There is nothing more exciting than shopping for a family who you know is in need. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the appreciation on the faces of those who answer the door when you drop off their gifts.

We often forget that those in need may be our neighbours. One of the strengths of our province and its rural communities, is that people do care for one another. I encourage all of you to pause for a moment, think about the folks in your community and make a commitment to make some child’s Christmas morning something to remember. The gift may be small, but it may be the only gift that child receives and even though the gift is small, the reward is huge. The sense of satisfaction that you feel in your heart is one not easily forgotten. Your Christmas morning will be better knowing some child has a smile on their face.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support and to wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season. Always remember…it is better to give than to receive.

Education Panel Report

E-mail Print PDF

Over 19,000 Nova Scotians have made their own decision to become involved in a review of public education in this province. They have responded to a call from the minister's panel to engage in a process to have their voices heard. Through an online survey, as well as written submissions and hundreds of emails, 50 per cent of the respondents indicated they are not satisfied with the education system as it currently exists. Those respondents included parents, students, teachers, education partners, community members, and business leaders from all geographic regions of the province. These responses have been presented under seven categories and the report also includes 30 recommendations.

One Year Anniversary

E-mail Print PDF

Today marks the one year anniversary of Nova Scotians electing a Liberal Government to serve them. Over our first year, we have accomplished much and kept our promises to Nova Scotians, including the removal of the “efficiency” tax from electricity bills, reversing years of cuts to classroom funding, and supporting the private sector fairly.

To learn more, please follow this link to read an Open Letter to Nova Scotians from Premier Stephen McNeil: http://www.liberal.ns.ca/a-message-from-premier-stephen-mcneil/

As your MLA, I want  to take this opportunity to thank my constituents for their comments, questions and concerns- I take them all seriously and appreciate your feedback to better serve you.

The province and community that he loved…the province and community that loved him.

I was honoured to represent the Province of Nova Scotia at the Farewell Service for Purdy Crawford, held in Five Islands on October 4th. Much has been spoken and written about the man, both before and since his death on August 12th. Many of you have shown interest in his life and accomplishments. For other readers, I hope the highlights and insights written here will be appreciated.
