HALIFAX - A Nova Scotia mayor says Prime Minister Stephen Harper will travel to central Nova Scotia on Thursday to announce funding for a new $50-million multi-purpose arena complex.
Harper is scheduled to participate in announcement at a Truro hotel with Defence Minister Peter MacKay, Premier Darrell Dexter, local MP Scott Armstrong and Truro Mayor Bill Mills.
Bob Taylor, the mayor of Colchester County, says the announcement will regard the federal portion of the funding for the Central Nova Scotia Regional Civic Centre Project.
Taylor says local officials are excited about the announcement because the federal portion of the funding will be crucial to making the project work.
Colchester County council has voted in favour of a $14.4-million capital contribution, while Truro has committed to contribute $9.6 million.
The proposed civic centre is to be located on land bordering the Town of Truro, Colchester County and the Millbrook First Nation.
