Premier Stephen McNeil was in Pugwash last Tuesday afternoon, where he announced a commitment to replace our existing hospital with a new Primary Health Care Centre.  

A tender for a design will go out in May, with construction to start in 2018. That is great news. On a sadder note, Dr. Rezvani announced he will be leaving Pugwash on June 1 to move to B.C. Sorry to hear this, but best wishes to you from all of us who had the pleasure of meeting you.

Saw four deer dancing and prancing on Church Street, opposite the old Presbyterian Church site, late one night recently. They finally trotted down Gullens’ lawn toward the water.

Please keep Jean MacLean and all others not enjoying good health at this time in your thoughts and prayers.
