(Halifax, NS) – Jimmy MacAlpine has been acclaimed as the Liberal candidate for Digby-Annapolis and will represent the Nova Scotia Liberal Party in the next provincial election. Due to COVID-19, the nomination meeting was conducted virtually.
Jimmy recently retired from Council after serving as councillor for the Municipality of the District of Digby for the past 20 years, and most recently as Warden for the past 4 years.

Throughout his time in municipal politics, Jimmy worked to enhance municipal transit, resulting in Kings Transit and Transport de Clare. He is committed to sustainability and led projects that work on climate change initiatives, such as the installation of tidal gauges in five locations to monitor sea-level rise. Jimmy was employed at T & C Motors, a family owned and operated business for over 40 years.
“Jimmy’s experience as Warden for the Municipality of the District of Digby makes him an excellent Liberal candidate for Digby-Annapolis,” says Premier Iain Rankin. “I look forward to working with him to create sustainable and economically sound decisions for all Nova Scotians.”
