Supporting Our Local Fire Brigades

Once again the Government of Nova Scotia makes funding available to volunteer fire departments through the Emergency Services Provider Fund. This is a fund provided by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Government contributes 50% of the eligible costs towards projects designed to assist fire brigades with life saving equipment.

As the MLA for Colchester North, I am proud to announce that three volunteer fire brigades have been successful in their application for funding in 2014. Each fire brigade identifies their needs and submits an application that supports their request for funding.

Great Village and District Fire Brigade purchased self-contained breathing apparatuses for their members and their application for funding of $6,923 was approved to help with their purchase. I commend the members of the brigade for their ongoing efforts to be progressive with their life saving equipment, not only for the members themselves, but to assist them in their response to emergencies in their communities.

I was pleased to join Chief Dave Lundie, Firefighter Pat Flemming, Fire Commissioner Betty MacNeil, Deputy Chief Larry Kinsman, Fire Commissioners Keith Smith, Bobby Patriquin, and Audrey Fields and thank them for their hours of volunteer service to their communities.

Transportation on the North Shore

The Nova Scotia Government continues to support rural transit organizations with projects within their communities. As recently as last month (August 1, 2014) I announced, on behalf of Municipal Affairs Minister Mark Furey, funding to eight rural communities under the Accessible Transportation Assistance Program. This investment of $412,000 demonstrates our commitment to helping rural Nova Scotians have greater access to inclusive transit services. Rural transportation organizations can make application to this program which provides funding up to a maximum of $70,000 for eligible projects.

Back to School - 2014

E-mail Print PDF

As the new school year begins, I want to welcome students, teachers and support staff back to school and ask that they work towards a successful year, keeping in mind that “our reason for being” is students.

As educators and support staff, we have been given the opportunity to work with students to help them learn and grow and to provide them with opportunities where both can happen. As the Minister of Education, I continue to be motivated by what is in the best interest of kids. That motivation is what helped me to be an efficient teacher and School Administrator and I know that it is the motivation that drives hundreds of teachers in this province to do the best they can every day in our classrooms.
