Former executive quits NDP
(CP) — A former executive with the Nova Scotia New Democratic Party left the party Friday because of what she described as her disappointment with the Dexter government.
Pamela Harrison of Halifax, a past treasurer of the provincial NDP, as well as a former constituency president and campaign volunteer, said the NDP government elected in June is no different from governments of other stripes. And it’s not doing enough on social justice issues.
Harrison, a longtime social activist focusing on women’s issues, said she saw the same lack of decorum in the legislature as with past governments, and criticized the government for looking at raising the harmonized sales tax.
