Nova Scotians will head to the polls May 30

After weeks of speculation, Premier Stephen McNeil has officially dropped the writ, and Nova Scotians will head to the polls on May 30.

Premier Stephen McNeil met with Lt.-Gov. J. J. Grant to ask that he dissolve the government and call a general election.

The election call comes after promotional material was found on the Liberal party’s website and YouTube channel that pointed to a May 30 election date. The May 30 election date meant the premier would need to call an election by Sunday. The 30-day campaign is the minimum allowed under election laws in Nova Scotia

The Progressive Conservatives launched their election campaign in Dartmouth Saturday. The NDP launched their campaign last Sunday.
