Where’s Cecil?

Welcome to this week’s installment of “Where’s Cecil?” my ongoing effort to┬ákeep track of Mayor Cecil Clarke’s campaign appearances to judge just how much time he’s taking from his day job to travel the province in pursuit of the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Nova Scotia.

I’m focusing on events scheduled for weekdays during business hours or out-of-town events that would require travel on weekdays during business hours. This week, I’ve spotted these:



In the end, this Thursday visit to Tatamagouche (which I somehow missed last week) was postponed due to “the nasty weather forecast” and is to be rescheduled. (If you will recall from last week, Clarke was in Antigonish on Wednesday, March 21.)


Fall River

The photo below was posted at 2PM on March 24 — a Saturday — but the mayor is coy about when he was actually in Fall River, saying only, “I was very happy to stop by Krista Snow’s home in Fall River recently to chat with folks about the future of our beautiful province.”


Pictou County

He’ll be in Stellarton on Wednesday evening.


Sky Lounge

And the next day (Thursday) will find him in Halifax — which will be his second visit to the capital this week, as he was there on Monday to appear before the Law Amendments Committee with CAO Marie Walsh in support of Bill 85. (That’s the bill amending the Municipal Government Act to give the CBRM the power to sell land at below-market value and offer tax abatements.)
