The constituency of Hants West consists of the Town of Windsor, the Town of Hantsport and the Municipality of West Hants serving a total population of approximately 20,000 people.
I encourage you to personally visit our area as we have lots to offer, after all we are the home of the Birthplace of Hockey, High Tides along the Minas Basin, King's Edgehill - Canada's First Independent School and where else could you row across a lake in a Giant Pumpkin during our annual Pumpkin Regatta.
Whereas today marks the beginning of Veterans' Week; and
Whereas during this important week we take time to recognize the achievements of our veterans and honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom; and
Whereas we wear poppies to show our enduring gratitude for everything they have done, and promise to protect their legacy so all future generations know of their tremendous contribution;
Therefore be it resolved that all members of this House of Assembly pay tribute to our veterans and let them know just how grateful we are for the extraordinary sacrifices they made for us.
Mr. Speaker, I request waiver of notice and passage without debate.
Is it agreed?
It is agreed.
Would all those in favour of the motion please say Aye. Contrary minded, Nay.
The motion is carried.
New Law Further Supports Our Military Veterans
November 7, 2014
WINDSOR – Hants West MLA Chuck Porter has successfully passed a private members bill which expands the class of veterans who are to be given preference for appointment to the Civil Service. “Our veterans deserve all the support we can offer them,” Porter said.
The new definition of “veteran” honours the service of our modern veterans, those veterans of peacekeeping missions, and the Canadian mission in Afghanistan, alongside our veterans of the Second World War and the Korean War.
“Helping our new generation of veterans transition to civilian life through increased opportunities in the civil service is a win-win,” said Porter. “The veterans are offered positions they are qualified for and the civil service gets great employees.”
