Nova Scotia premier promising to create more jobs along the South Shore

BRIDGEWATER, N.S. - Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter says the province will speed up government projects to create jobs along the province's South Shore.

The province's NDP government announced $15 million for road improvements in Lunenburg, Shelburne and Queens counties late last week.

Dexter says the investments will stimulate the economy in the wake of recent setbacks in the region, including the closure in June of the Bowater Mersey paper mill in Brooklyn.

The province also plans to upgrade three provincial parks in the region — Rissers Beach, Thomas Raddall and The Islands near Shelburne.

The premier says tenders will go out soon and work will be carried out over the next year.
