The saga of the Crown land at Owls Head on the Eastern Shore appears to be turning the page to its final chapter.
“I’ve asked my department to prioritize this piece of land to move it forward,” Tory Rushton, Nova Scotia’s minister of natural resources and renewables, said after a cabinet meeting Thursday.
“There’s a lot of steps that have to go into it, but rest assured, as we go through those steps, we’re certainly going to be very transparent as to where this land is going to go. It will be protected one way or another.”
… Rushton said Nova Scotians were “certainly heard,” and the previous government’s decision is “not what we see for our province.”
Rushton couldn’t say if the Crown land will be protected as a provincial park or as a wilderness area.
