Update: The following letter was written to the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources just now...

Ms. Julie Towers
Deputy Minister
Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources

...

Dear Deputy Minister Towers,

I am writing about the fate of two bear cubs found in Inverness County yesterday. A post on Facebook has received over 46,000 views, over 1000 shares and 231 comments in just 9 hours. There is overwhelming support to change the current Nova Scotia government policy on rehabilitation for bears in this type of situation.

Here is a copy of the Facebook post:

“We have a little bear cub to save. A mother bear died and her cubs were found today (Monday) trying to hide in trees nearby here in Inverness County. Nova Scotia is one of only two provinces that do not allow bears to be saved and re-introduced to the wild. Yesterday I spoke with Hope Swinimer of Hope For Wildlife. Her organization is willing to take them with a plan to return them to the wild, but unless the policy is changed, one of the bears will be taken to a wildlife park, and the other will be euthanized. That could happen as early as tomorrow (Tuesday). Who wants to help? Share this post, like it, or comment on it. The more interest people take, the greater the chance these cubs will have to live. Why not let Hope For Wildlife have a chance to try?”

Please consider the public support, and the evidence of eight other Canadian provinces whose policies allow the rehabilitation of bears like these cubs. Keep them alive and give them a chance to live through Hope for Wildlife.

Sincerely,
Allan MacMaster
PC Candidate for re-election, Inverness

Due to a power outage, the Campaign Office in Inverness will be closing early this afternoon. We will re-open Monday morning at 8:30 a.m.. Enjoy the weekend!

If you will be traveling outside or working outside the province during the election, you may want to consider voting by write-in ballot. You can vote this way from anywhere in the world. Contact Elections Nova Scotia. The details are below.

This fellow was feeling a little sheepish about being on the fence, but by the end of our conversation he is a supporter!

MR. ALLAN MACMASTER « » : Fifty-nine years. Vi's Restaurant in Whycocomagh served the public for 59 years. In a world where only two in five restaurants survived beyond three years, Vi's has stood the test of time and the test of different generations of tastes. Trucking and good food go hand in hand, and as owners of a long-standing trucking business, Viola and J.P. MacInnis saw the need for a restaurant. With a prime location on Highway No. 105, Vi's became a place everyone... knew and trusted.

April 15th marked the last day for locals and travellers to enjoy a piece of modern history. Earlier this month, Vi's daughter Beatrice, her husband Robert MacLeod, and their daughter Beverly were honoured for their business achievement by the Whycocomagh Development Association. May we extend applause to this family for their contribution to our economy, for the employment they gave to so many, and for creating a signature place of rest and refreshment on Nova Scotia's roadways.

May is Gaelic Awareness Month...

MR. ALLAN MACMASTER « » : A Labhraiche Urramaich. Mar Ghaidheal, chunna mi dol sios ar canan agus ar dualchas nuair a bha mi a'fas suas. Tha an da chuid gle chudtromach dha'n mhor-roinn seo ann an iomadh doigh.

Ged a tha mion-chananan a'crionadh, agus ann an cunnart air feadh an t-saoghail, tha mi toilichte a radh gu bheil ath-bheothachadh canain agus cultuir air chois a'seo ann an Albainn Nuaidh.

...

Chi mi an deagh-bhuaidh a th'aige seo air na Gaidheil, sean is og, agus tha mi toilichte gu bheil Riaghaltas na h-Albann Nuaidh air a bhi cuideachail a thaobh seo, fad, co-dhiu, coig bliadhna diag. Tha iomairt mhath air chois a'seo, agus bu choir dhuinn barrachd taic a chumail rithe.

As a Nova Scotian Gael, I have seen my grandparents speak Gaelic and understand it is part of who I am. What I have found strange is that Gaelic seems to be disappearing as this generation of Nova Scotians passes on to the next world.

Linguistic diversity is in severe decline around the world. We are losing cultural richness and all that it adds to our lives. Yet, we are supporting the revitalization of Gaelic here in Nova Scotia. I have witnessed this personally, even within my own family. We must keep it alive for the many Nova Scotians who share this heritage.

The efforts of the provincial government over the past 15 years have made a difference. It strengthens identity, creates confidence in one's culture, creates bonds between young Nova Scotians and their families and communities, giving them reason to stay here in this province. It also creates enormous economic return.

Based on this success, let us have continued investment in this important cultural resource.
