PC Leader Rejuvenated After Weekend Party Vote

There is overwhelming party support for Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservative opposition leader! At the PC Party's annual convention over the weekend, Jamie Baillie underwent a required leadership review and he was re-acclaimed by a whopping 95 percent of party members. Baillie says the show of support, especially from the South Shore, is humbling and it has re-energized him.

Its the first time the province's tories have met since last fall's election when gains were made at the polls, becoming the Official Opposition in the Legislature. A leadership review wasn't actually required until 2015 but Baillie wanted it early following the October 8, 2013 provincial election.
