For immediate release.

SYDNEY –NDP Leader Gary Burrill is lending support to the call from Cape Breton Regional Municipality Mayor Cecil Clarke for the McNeil government to provide $1.5 million in emergency support to deal with damage from this week’s storm.

“Our province should do whatever we can to support the people of Cape Breton during this difficult time. Cape Bretoners deserve assurance that their communities will have the support of the provincial government in addressing the impact of this storm,” said Burrill.
