Best Member Of The Provincial Legislature

Maureen MacDonald

MLA Halifax NeedhamThe bulk of MacDonald’s work in the past year has been, as she explains, “holding the government’s feet to the fire” as part of the Public Accounts Committee, which explored the dual fiascos of the Nova Scotia Immigration Nominee Program and the Commonwealth Games bid. “I’m a strong believer in transparency and openness in government,” says the MLA for Halifax Needham. Currently working on a Private Members Bill that will protect whistleblowers from corporate prosecution, MacDonald is also pushing hard to appoint an Auditor General for HRM. “With more than a half a billion dollars in expenditures, if there’s no audit, all citizens should be concerned about that.”
