Royal loo to be re­worked at lieu­tenant gov­er­nor's house

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

HAL­I­FAX (CP) — A re­gal throne of sorts is un­der­go­ing a makeover to avoid pos­si­ble pri­vacy prob­lems.

A spokesman for Nova Sco­tia’s lieu­tenant-gov­er­nor says a wash­room at the newly ren­o­vated Gov­ern­ment House in Hal­i­fax has to be re­done to suit the needs of the Queen and other VIPs.

Christo­pher McCreery says a bath­room re­served for royalty and other prom­i­nent vis­i­tors is shared by two ad­join­ing bed­rooms.

He says it’s not ac­cept­able for the Queen to share a wash­room so the room will be di­vided into two pri­vate bath­rooms.

The of­fi­cial res­i­dence of Lt.Gov. Mayann Fran­cis re­opened in De­cem­ber af­ter un­der­go­ing a ren­o­va­tion that cost tax­pay­ers $6 mil­lion and took sev­eral years.

The changes will cost $15,000, but McCreery says it’s not yet clear whether the Queen will stay at the res­i­dence when she vis­its the prov­ince this June.
