Percy Paris

Last night Premier Darrell Dexter accepted the resignation from Cabinet of African Nova Scotian Affairs and Economic and Rural Development Minister Percy Paris.

Paris offered his resignation from Cabinet following an incident at the House of Assembly in the afternoon.

"Mr. Paris offered his resignation this evening and I have accepted it," said Premier Dexter in a release. "Percy has been a valued member of my team. He has made important contributions to the province. He has been a champion for African Nova Scotians in the Cabinet and caucus. However, Percy must now focus on dealing with the allegations made against him."

Paris continues to serve as MLA for Waverly-Fall River-Beaverbank.

Premier Dexter will announce changes to cabinet this morning.

Organizations: African Nova Scotians

Geographic location: Fall River

    happy happy happy,another one bites the dust,one way or another,the MLA's on the ruling party are scurrying to get of the boat and leave the Dexter Regime before they get dragged under with him when he finally calls the next election,the sooner the better most Nova Scotians will be thrilled.from the onset mr dexter has done absolutly nothing but break his own campaign promises ,we are now not that happy knowing we own two thirds of a Korean windmill plant which cannot get even local orders to put their 200 employee wishlist in the 2nd year materalize,300 million to Billionaires,the Irvings,then another lot of Millions to Northern Pulp,the list goes on and on,is it any wonder why Nova Scotia is so far in debt? Please Mr.Dexter,call that election before you all leave those plush seats today ending the spring session
