Five Ways Stephen McNeil Just Doesn’t Get It

Stephen McNeil claims he has made Nova Scotia stronger, but the record shows he just doesn’t get it.

He doesn’t get that Nova Scotia families are working harder, paying more, and getting less. He doesn’t get that Nova Scotia families are tired of being told our province is poor. He doesn’t get that Nova Scotia families want a government that realizes our province’s potential and works hard to achieve it.

Here are five points that prove Stephen McNeil just doesn’t get it:

Despite his promise from the last election, there are now 100,000 Nova Scotians without a family doctor.


When McNeil slashed the film tax credit, industry leaders spoke out against the cuts because they knew it would be a significant blow to the Nova Scotia economy. He wouldn’t listen.


McNeil and Education Minister Karen Casey unfairly built new schools in their own constituencies, skipping over other schools in the queue that are in much greater need.

 

Nova Scotia emergency rooms are declaring ‘code census’ more than ever before, specialists are leaving for jobs elsewhere, the Liberals have ignored the crisis in mental health, and our surgery wait times are among the highest in the country.

 

 

McNeil claims the rank and file still support him, even though he caused the first ever teacher strike in Nova Scotia’s history, which prompted thousands of teachers, parents and students to protest Bill 75.
