Greg Morrow named Nova Scotia ag minister

Nova Scotia’s premier Tim Houston unveiled his Conservative cabinet on August 31, 2021. He named long-time radio news director Greg Morrow (MLA Guysborough-Tracadie) to the role of minister of agriculture.

 

In his campaign literature, Morrow said he would listen to his community's concerns and be an advocate in Halifax on issues such as:

 

  • - Improving access to health care, mental health care, long-term care and ambulance services
  •  
  • - Helping the rural economy thrive by improving infrastructure such as Internet service and road repairs
  •  
  • - Working to meet the needs of small businesses, the backbone of our local communities

 

Morrow will be one of the new faces at the next federal-provincial-territorial agriculture ministers’ meeting which has been postponed until after the federal election on September 20.
