Nova Scotia By-elections

Voters in the Glace Bay and Yarmouth constituencies will go to the polls on June 22nd to replace their M.L.A.'s who quit provincial politics once the Expense Account scandal hit earlier this year.

Glace Bay was held by Liberal Dave Wilson, and Yarmouth was held by Conservative Richard Hurlburt.  Both had held their ridings since the 1999 election.

Early indications seem to show that the Liberals could pick up Yarmouth, but they could also lose Glace Bay to the NDP, who have 3-time candidate Myrtle Campbell running again.

Stay tuned!
