There is a chronic shortage of family practice physicians in this riding. We have one physician in Digby seeing patients by appointment, and none at the Weymouth clinic. We do have a number of Nurse practicians that are doing great work but we have a need for six family practice physicians, we have residents having to travel to Yarmouth and up the Valley as far as Kentville to see a doctor.
Everyone should have access to adequate housing. It is very difficult to find such housing in this riding. There is a project planned by Compass Coop Housing but no start date has been established. Also because of the hot housing market, tenants are been removed from their rental units and the homeowners are listing the properties for sale. The COVID pandemic has also placed more pressure on an already strained situation as the cost of building materials has slowed the construction of new units
We have many communities in this riding with little or no cellular phone service. This is not just a social connectivity issue, this is a health and safety issue and one That needs to be addressed.
