"We have much to be excited about as Liberals in Pictou West,” said Ben MacLean, incoming president. "Despite being unsuccessful electorally, we remain energized and will continue all the great work that was done by so many over the course of the last few years in this riding, as well as working with our friends in Pictou Centre and Pictou East. I have told Premier McNeil personally that with a strong and united team, we will work hard to deliver a Pictou West Liberal MLA next election.”
