DIGBY, NS – Insurance agent and business owner Normand Cormier has been acclaimed as the Progressive Conservative candidate for Clare–Digby.
“It is a great honour to be able to represent the people of my area and to work for them,” said Cormier.
Cormier, who has studied towards his Master’s degree in French calls the government’s inaction on the electoral boundaries issue the height of arrogance.
“The Court of Appeal ruled that the changes made to the electoral map in 2012 were unconstitutional and they took away the Acadians’ voice in the Legislature,” Cormier says. “The fact that the current Liberal member has done nothing to stand with the Acadian community is wrong. I can assure the people of Clare-Digby that I will not be passive and I will stand strong with the community.”
Cormier says he supports Progressive Conservative leader Jamie Baillie’s plan for a sustainable Yarmouth-Maine ferry service.
“People are tired by the Liberal government’s inaction in many areas like the economy, health, and education. The situation in Weymouth is particularly devastating for those who need a family doctor now,” says Cormier. “I’m proud to stand with Jamie Baillie. He has a vision for Nova Scotia and a plan to turn the economy around.”
Baillie says Cormier will be a strong MLA for Clare-Digby.
“Normand Cormier’s experience and community history will serve him well as the next Progressive Conservative MLA for Clare-Digby,” said Baillie. “He has the qualities a good MLA needs and the people of Clare-Digby can rest assured, he will fight for them.”
