LANTZ: If Hants East MLA John A. MacDonald is seen with a bald head in the coming days, that’s because he gave the students at Hants East Rural High an incentive to one up CEC.

And they did that.

Exactly by how much they beat their rivals in Truro in amount raised at the Relay for Life, that the school held June 13 at the school in Milford, will be known over the next week.

What is known is that CEC had raised $56,000 at their Relay for Life, so what HERH students collected was over that.


MLA MacDonald made a deal with organizers that if the students at HERH raised more than that he would get his hair shaved.

Well the organizers have confirmed the school collected more than $56,000, so MLA MacDonald is going to have to pay up.

And soon.

He only hopes it grows back by mid August, when he will get married.

(The hair shave took place June 18, and the final tally raised by the students was close to $63,000.)
