HALIFAX – The Nova Scotia legislature has concluded a routine 25-day fall sitting that saw the passage of 25 bills.

Premier Stephen McNeil points to legislation around establishing Develop Nova Scotia as one of the main achievements of the sitting.

Formerly the Waterfront Development Corp., the entity will be responsible for, amongst other things, developing high speed broadband services in under-serviced rural areas of the province.

He also pointed to legislation that would implement measures to accommodate internal free agreements with other provinces.

But interim Progressive Conservative Leader Karla MacFarlane says the sitting dealt with “a lot of housekeeping bills,” while questions remain about persistent family doctor shortages and around the implementation of legal cannabis on October 17th.

N-D-P Leader Gary Burrill says the government was “so many miles off the mark” during the sitting.

He points to a lack of investment in such things as long term care and decisions like endorsing the one-year pilot project to burn tires for fuel at the Lafarge cement plant in Brookfield.
