RV Light Fix

Bluenose RV's owner says they are willing to fix an issue with a light on their dealership off Exit 12. Darren Young tells CKBW they've been speaking with Department of Transportation about the issue for months. He adds they tried to get some clarification on the matter not long after the lights went up and someone complained to them. Young says one light will be moved as soon as the employee who is going to do the work returns from down south, within a couple of weeks.   And he says the D-O-T were fine with that since it took them three months to get back to Bluenose about the issue.  DOT says they were reacting to a complaint about a light on the RV dealer's property shining onto Highway 103. Under the Motor Vehicle Act no one is allowed to put up a light that creates a glare on the highway.

It's been more than a month since the passing of Lunenburg MLA Michael Baker.   And staff in his office say things are pretty much winding down.  Former Executive Assistant Kim Langille says they will be doing their best to help out constituents where they can.  She adds they don't have a definite time line for a closure of the office.   And Langille says in the meantime most of the people looking for help are getting in touch with Carolyn Bollivar-Getson's Lunenburg West constituency office.  She says that has been the ususal route people have been taking when they want to bring a concern to the Conservative government.   Bollivar-Getson is the minister of Natural Resources.
