Colton LeBlanc re-offering as PC candidate in Argyle

TUSKET – Colton LeBlanc will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Argyle in the next provincial general election.

First elected in a by-election in 2019 and re-elected in 2021, LeBlanc has helped build up the constituency of Argyle and southwestern Nova Scotia through the following investments:

  • Moving forward with the expansion of Yarmouth Regional Hospital’s emergency department;

  • $1 million towards the modernization Yarmouth Heights to create 21 single long term care spaces;

  • $4 million towards the redevelopment and expansion of the Mariners Centre;

  • Continued investment in the construction of the new École Wedgeport;

  • New childcare spaces at Le Jardin des Petits in Tusket with a new location and new spaces in Wedgeport; 

  • $2 million for a new track and field in Tusket;

  • More than $1.2 million for water and sewer infrastructure in East Pubnico and Tusket;

  • Nearly $1 million for the wastewater treatment plant in Yarmouth; and 

  • Various community funding including $86,000 for upgrades to the Plymouth Recreational Hall.

“It has been an honour to represent the people of Argyle in Premier Tim Houston’s government,” said LeBlanc. “My constituents have placed their confidence and trust in me through two elections. They are the motivation for me to keep working hard to build up a better Nova Scotia and to fix what was broken under the previous Liberal government.” 

An advanced care paramedic before his election to the Legislature, LeBlanc is a member of Premier Houston’s cabinet, serving as Minister of Service Nova Scotia, Cyber Security and Digital Solutions and Acadian Affairs and Francophonie. 

“Colton gets the job done for the people of Argyle as an important member of my team,” said Premier Tim Houston. “I need him to continue the work of our government to build up Nova Scotia, in Argyle and across the province. We can’t go back to a government that ignores health care, neglects seniors, fights with workers and supports the Liberal carbon tax.”
