Pictou East Liberals Choose New Candidate

The Liberals have announced a new representative for Pictou East in the upcoming Provincial Election. John Fraser takes the spot of Matthew MacKnight, who was dropped Monday after an inappropriate tweet surfaced.

Fraser is a graduate of St. FX with a Political Science and Education degree. After university, he worked in forestry, produced tires at Michelin, and taught.

Fraser is a lifelong resident of Pictou County. He and his wife Sally raised six children, including Central Nova’s Member of Parliament, Sean Fraser.

Provincial Election nominations close this afternoon.
