“I am humbled by the support from the people of Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley, my family and my friends, and I am excited for the opportunity to help my constituents,” said Harrison, in a news relaese. “I am deeply grateful to be afforded this opportunity.”
Harrison says the new Progressive Conservative team will hold the Liberal government to account in the days ahead. On Wednesday, PC leader Jamie Baillie announced the PC shadow cabinet and Harrison will be the new Communities, Culture and Heritage critic. Prior to his election, Harrison was a United Church Minister for forty years and has a long history of public service and helping people in need.
"The rich culture and heritage of our communities comes from the people that live there and that is Nova Scotia’s strength. Unfortunately, job losses are forcing people to move away and separating families,” said Harrison. “I want to see the Liberal plan to create jobs for Nova Scotia communities and protect of rich culture. We will hold them accountable to that.”
