Fall Session of NS Legislature Kicks Off Thursday

Power rates, electoral boundaries, education and health care will be front and centre during the fall session of the Nova Scotia legislature. Province House is set to welcome MLA's back for the beginning of the fall session on Thursday. It could be the last full session before Nova Scotian's head to the polls in a provincial election. Liberal Health Critic Leo Glavine says he will focus on several important issues over the next few weeks. The Kings West MLA says he will push the government on hospital wait times, prescription drug abuse and crowded emergency rooms. Glavine says the issues are province-wide and are the result of poor planning and budget cuts.
