Peter MacKay's Riding Gets $600,000 In New Projects


PICTOU, N.S. - Defence Minister Peter MacKay has announced that three recreational facilities in his Nova Scotia riding are getting more than $600,000 in federal funding.

The MP for Central Nova issued a statement Wednesday saying the money will be used by the Hector Arena in Pictou, the New Glasgow Marina and the Trenton Minor Sports Centre.

The money comes from Ottawa's Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.

MacKay says the federal government has invested more than $400 million in his riding since 2006.
