AMHERST Young, ambitious and uncontested, Brent Noiles secured the candidacy for Cumberland Norths Liberal ticket on Saturday, bringing a message of faith in the rural economy and creating a province that can compete with its neighbours.

If were going to survive we need to get better and invest in our own people, Noiles told his fellow Liberals at his nomination meeting. And we need to be competitive. Every time one of us drives across the border to fill up were paving a New Brunswick road.

The Liberals goal to lower the provinces gas tax by four cents would be a concrete way for people in Cumberland North to reap the benefits of what he calls common sense thinking.

Im not a farm boybut rural Nova Scotia is the backbone of our economy, Noiles said. I believe very strongly all areas deserve representation and we all deserve a candidate that doesnt put their interests first.

Noiles acceptance speech drew applause from the attending supporters and well-wishers, including Cumberland South Liberal contender Mary Dee McPherson and Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley federal hopeful Tracy Parsons.

It was Noiles leader-in-chief, Nova Scotia Liberal leader Stephen McNeil, though, that had the highest praise for the newest member into the Liberal fold.

[People] need someone like Brent coming from here to tell Halifax what they need. Not the other way around, McNeil said.

McNeil would neither confirm nor deny his party will buck the Progressive Conservatives budget and call for an election but told Noiles to be ready to hit the campaign trail at any given moment.

Noiles says hell chart a course by talking and meeting with the people of Cumberland North so when and if an election is called hes ready to fight for their interests.

Geographic location: Cumberland North, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley
