Best Member Of The Provincial Legislature

Gold Winner Brendan Maguire

Silver Winner Maureen MacDonald

Bronze Winner Joanne Bernard

“Are you joking?” Brendan Maguire asks when he’s informed he’s won Best Member Of The Provincial Legislature. The Halifax Atlantic MLA for the Liberals has been a longtime reader of The Coast, and has joked with friends that his legacy can be gauged by his Best of placement. “If I ever make bronze, then I know I’ve arrived.” Maguire says his win comes from his openness and non-partisan take on provincial politics. His constituents have his office, home and cell number. “I don’t turn people away,” he says. "I just try and help people.”
