Chender visits Colchester, Truro
NDP Leader Claudia Chender visited Stewiacke and Truro today as part of the start of her 2023 tour of the province. She met with local community leaders and organizations to hear about the issues that are important to Nova Scotians.
“Certainly, when we were down in Stewiacke, we were hearing a lot about growth and managing growth, about the number of people who have moved here, and we are hearing about housing right across the board – availability, affordability, or lack thereof," Chender told the Truro News. "We’re hearing about inflation, which is impacting everyone but, most of all, just like in the rest of the province, we are hearing about health care. People are concerned about having a family doctor, whether their emergency rooms are going to be open, and just a general concern about accessing health care.”
