Cumberland South MLA responds to community unrest

Cumberland South MLA and PC leader Jamie Baillie issued a press release Thursdayafternoon that reaffirms his commitment to province's oldest district school.

SPRINGHILL– Cumberland South MLA and PC leader Jamie Baillie has reconfirmed his commitment to complete the rebuilding of River Hebert District School.

In addition, he stated that as Premier and leader of a PC government, he will ensure that the planned renovations are done.

“The people of River Hebert and area have waited long enough. They have been told time and time again that the new school will be built. I expect the tenders to complete this project will soon be issued. However, let me be clear,” said Baillie. “If the NDP don’t get those tenders out before an election is called, I will issue them myself after - as Premier.”

Baillie is responding to questions from the community about the NDP commitment to the school. When the community was last updated on the status of this project, they were told that new tenders have been drawn up, they have been independently costed and they have been sent to Halifax for approval before being issued.

“That update was in June. It’s now August and valuable construction time is once again being lost. It is past time to approve the tender documents and get on with the project,” Baillie added.
