Province calls tenders for stalled renovation project

AMHERST – Progressive Conservative leader and Cumberland South candidate Jamie Baillie was pleased to hear Thursday that Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal issued a tender for additions and repairs to River Hebert District School.

When he was MLA for Cumberland South, Baillie presented a petition to the provincial government, called repeatedly on the government to act, warned in August that residents had waited long enough and committed to having the school completed if elected premier.

“Today I’m both relieved and excited for the students of River Hebert and their families,” Baillie said in a news release. “This process took far too long and should have been completed a year ago. Finally the students and their families will get what they deserve.”

Baillie spoke highly of the River Hebert students, their families and the community for their persistence to get this project done, despite the inaction of the NDP government.

 “Schools are the hub of a community and all students deserve fair treatment and a safe place to learn,” Baillie said. “To see this project finally moving forward is good news for the community of River Hebert.”

    For 3 years Baillie has showed no interest in River Hebert school. Now he wants's to take credit for the tender of the school.Why did you not bring it up every chance you had. the people of River Hebert sat and looked at the news paper for months with no mention of the school by you. If it had not been for a number of people who threatened the NDP government by going to Halifax it protest at their headquarters. We would more than likely still be waiting for our school. Baillie it is to late for your Bull. I can hardly wait until Oct.8 when we have a new MLA.
