Antigonish MLA Randy Delorey has announced the province will spend $104,000 for the three projects under the Low Carbon Communities Program.

The Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation will receive $49,000 to build a new 350-metre pedestrian and bike trail to connect Saqamaw Road to the Bayside Connector Trail and the soon to be opened Bayside Travel Centre. Paqtnkek will also contribute $49,000 to the project.

The County of Antigonish will get $38,000 to complete a feasibility study to determine which energy projects best meet climate change mitigation, local employment and energy targets. This is a joint initiative with Paqtnkek.

The St. Andrews Community Partnership Association will receive $16,000 to replace the local church’s oil-fired steam boiler with an energy-efficient option and convert its heating system.
