Former Lunenburg MLA Eyes Federal Politics

A former MLA in Lunenburg is throwing her hat into the federal ring. Pam Birdsall has announced her intention to run for the NDP in the South Shore - St. Margaret's constituency in the next federal election. Birdsall spent four years in provincial politics before she was ousted from office by Liberal member Suzanne Lohnes-Croft in last October's election. Birdsall feels she's ready for a new chapter in her life.

Birdsall is the first person to announce their intention, and she expects to be challenged by others. She feels it's time to reign out the Conservatives.

The next federal election is planned for the fall of 2015 or sooner.
