The Nova Scotia government is continuing to entertain the idea of selling a section of rugged, Crown-owned land along the Eastern Shore to a private developer, despite growing public opposition.
Premier Stephen McNeil has been the subject of a letter writing campaign by opponents of a proposal to build as many as three golf courses on a 285-hectare area of coastal barrens and wetlands known as Owls Head.
Following a cabinet meeting Thursday, McNeil admitted he had received “a lot of letters,” but said they didn’t influence his government’s decision to press ahead.
