By-Election Coming In June

Posted on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 18:47 PM

Voters will go to the polls June 18 in the riding of Sackville-Cobequid.

A by-election has been called to replace former NDP MLA Dave Wilson who stepped down in November.

Wilson had represented the riding in the legislature since 2003.

Four candidates have thrown their hats in the ring.

The NDP will hope Lara Fawthrop can maintain their grip on the riding, Michel Hindlet has stepped forward for the Liberals, the Greens have chosen to run Anthony Edmonds, and current HRM Councillor Steve Craig is running for the PCs.

All eligible voters will soon receive their Voter Information Cards.

Early voting begins May 16.
