Premier Tim Houston was joined by Hants East MLA John A. MacDonald for a tour at Corridor Community Options for Adults in Enfield; a stop by Sweet Spot Chocolate Shop in Elmsdale, before the tour continued in Shubenacadie at Botma Farms. The Laker News was not at that part of the visit.

At CCOA, Premier Houston spoke with some of the employees and clients who work there and learned more about the facility and its upcoming expansion.


He was also informed of how with price increases on almost everything and supply chain issues, the price tag for the new facility they are building in Elmsdale has also risen.

MLA MacDonald said he is hoping to get the Finance Minister out for a tour to see if there is anything more the province can do to assist CCOA.
