Inverness airport the wrong priority for Cape Breton

Halifax -- NDP Gary Burrill made the following statement about the potential government-funded airport for Inverness County:

“When our communities are desperate for investment in nursing homes, hospitals, and schools, it makes no sense for the McNeil government to place any priority on public funding for an airport that will mostly serve a private golf course.
If international golfers wish to bring their helicopters and be dropped directly on the fairways, that’s fine with me. But I don’t think we ought to ask the people of Nova Scotia to take money away from hospitals and nursing homes to pay for it.”
