In a traditionally Conservative riding, Green Party Candidate Bruce McCulloch doubled the Green vote in the recent by-election in Cumberland South. With 234 total votes, Bruce did exceptionally well in Parrsboro, taking just under 10% in the three Parrsboro polls and the community’s advance poll. The NDP took 5% of the vote, and the Greens placed close behind, with 4%.
The Green Party of Nova Scotia, and candidate Bruce McCulloch, extend a warm congratulations to Tory Rushton, and reiterate our willingness to work with parties of all stripes to achieve sustainable prosperity, invest in the green economy, and build resilient, vibrant communities with exceptional health care and education for all. Bruce in particular encourages Mr. Rushton to consider his community-engaged proposal for a process to attract doctors to Cumberland South.
