FREDERICTON (CUP) — Kelly Regan may have just been appointed Nova Scotia’s new Minister of Labour and Advanced Education, but student leaders have already have plans to meet with her. On Tuesday, Oct. 22, newly elected Liberal premier Stephen McNeil appointed his executive council and gave Regan, a former journalist with ATV/ASN, the job of looking after the province’s post-secondary and trades institutions. She is also in charge of the Status of Women Advisory Council.

FREDERICTON (CUP) – StudentsNS is looking forward to working with the province’s new Liberal government says executive director Jonathan Williams.

On Wednesday the Liberals ousted the NDP government in the provincial election. Winning 33 of 51 seats in the legislature, Stephen McNeil is the new premier of the province.

“We’re looking forward to working with the new government,” said Jonathan Williams, executive director of the student advocacy group. “There were a couple commitments that they made in the context of the election that are going to have a significant value for students.”
