Central Nova MP holding community consultations 

Central Nova MP Sean Fraser is hosting a series of community consultations to seek feedback on the topics of climate change and electoral reform.

On behalf of Minister of Environment Catherine McKenna and Minister of Democratic Institutions Maryam Monsef, Fraser and his team are hosting consultations where feedback, questions, and concerns will be collected and consolidated into a report for each minister.


“Both Minister McKenna and Minister Monsef are seeking input from Canadians and we want to support them in tackling these pan-Canadian issues,” said Fraser. “This is a chance to make sure Central Nova’s voice is heard and that rural Nova Scotia weighs in on topics that affect all Canadians.”


On July 19, Fraser will be co-hosting a consultation in Antigonish with St. Francis Xavier University, which will also be accessible by live-stream.


The evening will be moderated by Mary Coyle, executive director for St. FX’s McKenna Centre for Leadership.


On July 26, Fraser will be hosting a consultation at Memory Lane Heritage Village in Lake Charlotte on the Eastern Shore with MLA Kevin Murphy as moderator and at Summer Street Industries in New Glasgow on August 2 with Jaime Smith of Marram Consulting moderating.


At the consultations, the discussion on electoral reform will run from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., followed by the conversation on climate change from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. All are welcome to attend to discuss either topic, or join the conversation for both.


“Constituents are always welcomed and encouraged to reach out to us on these and any other topics,” said Fraser.

Those unable to attend either of the scheduled sessions are encouraged to email the office at, or call 1-844-641-5886. Details for the live broadcast option for the July 19 meeting will be shared on Fraser’s website once available.


These topic-specific community consultations are being held in addition to the series of 14 town hall meetings Fraser and his office are hosting across the riding this summer, which includes stops in Scotsburn, River John, and Pictou Landing First Nation – to name a few.


“These clinics and town halls are really intended to ensure that we’re providing direct access in outlying communities throughout the riding. For the town halls specifically, we’re looking forward to inviting participation in an open dialogue about what matters most to the people of Central Nova,” he said.
