HALIFAX - The prime minister is set to announce a funding deal worth millions of dollars for road construction in rural Nova Scotia.
A source familiar with the announcement says Stephen Harper will release the funding details Friday in Berwick, a small community in western Nova Scotia.
The source would only say the funding amounted to ''several millions.''
The prime minister is due to visit the Nova Scotia Transport and Infrastructure Renewal office just after lunch and then head to a market in nearby Wilmot.
Harper was in the region last month when he went to a hockey rink in Miramichi, N.B., and spoke of the need to pump money into infrastructure.

Organizations: Nova Scotia Transport

Geographic location: Nova Scotia, HALIFAX, Berwick Wilmot Miramichi

    Yes but the Feds have the checkbook ,they can withold it wherever they are uncomfortable with . This announcement is in support of Mr Kerr giving positive optics for the voting pattern in last election in that area . You won't find him in CCMV . The currant MP has in effect separated the riding from any political advantages . The crass business plan of the ADN of only allowing the degenerat viewpoint , such as f bear , should make poor longterm results . IMO

    ummm, harper has no control over how the Provincial Gov't spends money on roads. The Feds have no power over this and I would think it would be awfully hard for say a conservative to get elected in Nova Scotia on that sort of platform.
