The Grapevine on Government Special Provincial Election Questionnaire: TED CHAMPION
By Emily Leeson & Emily Kathan
We asked a series of questions to all the candidates from Hants West, Kings North, Kings South, Kings West, and Annapolis. We’ve printed a selection of these questions and answers in The Grapevine. Leading up to the election on May 30, we’ll be sharing online the entire questionnaire as completed by each candidate who took the time to do so.
The answers below were provided by: Ted Champion, NDP Candidate for Kings North
GV: How does your daily life differ now that the election has been called?
I’m home a lot less (which my wife doesn’t seem to mind) and I’m reaching my daily exercise goals by lunch time!
GV: The Valley has a vibrant and growing creative economy. What policies and strategies do you propose to support and expand the arts community at the provincial level?
Re-instate the N.S Film Credit to start but more importantly recognize that a vibrant, healthy community mush have a strong arts community.
GV: Will you have time to attend Apple Blossom Festival events this year? What’s your favourite event?
Absolutely! It is one of my favourite events of the year. It’s hard to pick just one event but if I must, I would chose the fireworks display!
