Tim Houston and the
"PC PLAN"

 

“I believe Nova Scotia deserves better.

We’re working to build a strong team that can  

unleash our potential, with a  government that listens, puts the personal above politics, and isn’t afraid to try new ideas.

Nova Scotians should see themselves represented in their government. I’m committed to forming a genuinely diverse team to build  on our party’s forward-thinking reputation.

 

We’ve won all but one by-election contested since the last election and we’re just getting started. Sign up on our website today to let us know we can count on your support in the next provincial election.”

Environment and Climate Change
 

The effects of Climate Change and the Environment are very real and their effects impact Nova Scotia’s.

Dignity for Seniors
 

The PC plan ‘Dignity for our Seniors’ shows how a Tim Houston government will support our seniors with important investments in long-term care. Our plan includes:

  • Building 2500 new long term care beds.

  • More staff with mandatory standards of care per resident.

  • New options for after home care , but before nursing home care, called ‘Supportive Living” that provides seniors and their families with increased choice and autonomy over care options and services.

  • More accountability by using technology to measure     outcomes.

 

Your PC team recognizes that after contributing their whole lives, our older citizens deserve to live their lives in comfort and with dignity.
