Final Weekend of Election Campaign

Nova Scotia’s major party leaders are lobbying for every last vote in the final weekend before Tuesday’s provincial election. Premier Stephen McNeil rallied his troops at a campaign event in Halifax, telling Liberal Party workers that a second majority mandate is within reach. Tory leader Jamie Baillie says only a change in government can turn around the province’s prospects, pitching his party as the only viable alternative. N-D-P leader Gary Burrill says the election comes at a “volatile moment” that could work in his party’s favour.
