PREMIER CALLS PROVINCIAL ELECTION FOR MAY 30

- The Canadian Press

Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil has called a provincial election for May 30, launching his bid for a second mandate by acknowledg­ing his government has made some unpopular decisions. “We had to make tough choices, choices that weren’t always popular,” he told a kickoff rally at a Lebanese cultural centre in Halifax Sunday. “I believe you either shape change or change shapes you. We had to shape our own change.” At dissolutio­n Liberals held 34 seats in the 51-seat legislatur­e, Progressiv­e Conservati­ves had 10 and the NDP 5. There was one Independen­t and one seat was vacant.
