TRURO – One promise, one goal.
Pc leader Jamie Baillie is seen during a press briefing in Truro on Monday morning as Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River candidate Charles Cox looks on.
That was the message Progressive Conservative leader Jamie Baillie tried to instill in voters on Monday during a stop in Truro on the last day of the provincial election campaign.
“The Progressive Conservative team will bring change by delivering on our one and only election promise: To turn Nova Scotia’s economy around,” Baillie said, during a media briefing in the Stanfields parking lot.
“Everything else is about how we plan to do it.”
Baillie told a small gathering of supporters, which included Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River candidate Charles Cox, that a PC government will make balanced budgets the law, unlike the Liberals who won’t commit to a balanced budget.
Baillie also reiterated his party’s platform promise to freeze power rates and to make Nova Scotia a tax-free zone for small businesses.
Defined pension plans for MLAs would also be on his hit list if his party is elected on Tuesday, Baillie said.
“We will scrap the gold-plated MLA pension plan where MLAs put up one dollar and taxpayers fork over six,” Baillie said, in a news release.
“Voters in Nova Scotia have seldom had such a stark choice. Only a Progressive Conservative government will bring real change, turn the economy around and get people working.”
