Nova Scotia party leaders make final pitch for votes ahead of Tuesday’s election


 

HALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s political party leaders are making their final pitch to voters ahead of Tuesday’s election.

Liberal Leader Stephen McNeil says his party must make gains in seat-rich Halifax, a bastion of NDP support in recent years, to take the reins of power.

At a campaign stop in the city, McNeil told party workers to reach out to disaffected NDP and Progressive Conservative supporters.

McNeil is wrapping up a three-day tour where is aiming to visit all but a handful of the province’s 51 ridings.

NDP Premier Darrell Dexter issued a statement asking undecided voters to give his party another chance, saying his government has learned a lot during its four years in power.

Dexter is campaigning in several key ridings in Halifax and along the province’s south shore.

Progressive Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie is on the hustings in Halifax, Truro and Antigonish.

  1. I would be one of those disaffected NDP voters. I don’t think the current government’s record is great at all. Unfortunately for MacNeil and Baillie, the records of their party’s respective governments is infinitely worse. Now that I know about all three devils, I can somewhat despondently vote for the NDP again, rather than inviting yet more fiscal mismanagement from those other two parties.
