Bedford South is one of the fastest growing areas in Nova Scotia. While this is great news it puts additional pressure on our school system. Fortunately, our Liberal government places a high priority on education and has funded two new schools (Pre-Primary to Grade 8 and Grade 9 to Grade 12) to be built on Broad Street.
The schools are scheduled to open for the 2023-24 school year, and construction is already underway. One of Braedon’s top priorities as your provincial MLA for Bedford South will be to work with all members of the school community to help make the opening process as smooth as possible. Braedon is very excited to get to work on your behalf.
The dream of a ferry service from Bedford to downtown Halifax has been around for many years. Through its Rapid Transit Strategy, the municipality has identified the areas of Mill Cove and Larry Uteck as potential future sites for high-speed ferry service from Bedford to downtown Halifax. Total transit time from dock to dock is expected to be less than 20 minutes.
The ferry service will ease traffic congestion in Bedford, move people in a fast, relaxing, and efficient manner, and provide a more cost effective and sustainable mode of transportation. It will have significant spinoff effects for both Halifax and Bedford.
A recent investment of $3.3 million for planning of the Mill Cove ferry was an important first step for this transformative project. Braedon will continue working with federal and municipal partners to make this long-held dream a reality at both the Mill Cove and Larry Uteck locations.
There are many important issues affecting Bedford South and its residents. Whether it is seniors’ needs , health care, affordable housing, environmental protection, or park preservation like Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes, there is so much that deserves an attentive and informed MLA. Braedon is passionate about working with the growing and diverse community of Bedford South so that these many challenges can be addressed in a collaborative, positive, and effective way.
