Campaign Politics – West Nova, Nova Scotia

CPAC’s Bill Kendrick visits the riding of West Nova, Nova Scotia, to examine key election issues and to meet candidates vying to become MP for the region in the October 14, 2008, federal election.

In 2006, Liberal Robert Thibault beat Conservative Greg Kerr by only 1.1% of the vote. The same two candidates are back at it in 2008.

The results could be somewhat different this time as the New Democrats have run a strong campaign with George Barron, a paramedic based in Digby, N.S. Ronald Mills, an Air Force veteran and Sunday school teacher, is running for the Green Party. Cindy Nesbitt, an independent candidate, is hoping to capitalize on the popularity of another Nova Scotia independent Bill Casey.

Bill also speaks with Gary Nickerson (news director, CJLS, Yarmouth, N.S.).
