M.P. Bossio “Could Not be Happier” About Creation And Appointment of Minister of Rural Economic Development

Nova Scotia M.P. Bernadette Jordan has been named the minister of rural economic development.

“I could not be happier,” M.P. for Hastings-Lennox and Addington Mike Bossio said when reached for comment. Bossio said the creation of this new portfolio has been advocated for by rural caucus. He added that having a minister that will be “shining that rural lense upon all government programs and policy” is a good thing.

Jordan was elected at the M.P. for South Shore-St. Margarets in Novia Scotia in 2015 getting over 50-percent of the vote.

When asked what kind of person Jordan is, Bossio called her a “scrapper.” He went on to say that he has a good relationship with her and plans to sit down with her in the future for a discussion. “She and I speak the same language” he added.

“Given the rapid changes that are happening in our world today, we need to have a minister at the table that’s going to ensure rural municplaities have a level playing field and to be able to compete head to head in these new areas,” Bossio said.
