“Does the Premier regret forcing communities to take his decisions to court for a third time?”

Gary Burrill questions Premier Iain Rankin about a pattern of judicial reviews brought forward by citizens

GARY BURRILL: Mr. Speaker, the Premier’s decisions as minister are now in court a third time. This time, it’s the judicial review from last week of his decision to secretly delist Owls Head Provincial Park with a view to selling it to a developer who would turn it into a golf course.

Does the Premier regret forcing communities to take his decisions to court for a third time now?

THE PREMIER: I think it’s really important when you are the Premier, or even a minister, that you are there for all Nova Scotians, continuing to look at what is being brought forward, continuing to be reasonable, bringing these issues to your colleagues, following the right process, and hearing from all Nova Scotians when there are matters that they want us to look into.
