The provincial government says the sale of the ServiCom call centre in Cape Breton should be completed before the end of the year. When the call centre in Sydney was closed a week ago, almost 700 workers lost their jobs. Employees did not receive advance notice of the closure and are owed almost 4 weeks in back pay.
If you want your weed in time for Christmas you better get it soon. Finance minister Karen Casey says Nova Scotia is getting only 35-40% of the cannabis it needs to meet demand. She says there has been no need yet to close any of the 12 shops run by the NSLC due to product shortages, but the situation is being monitored.
Nova Scotia has recruited 18 new doctors from abroad as part of its effort to deal with the doctor shortage. Immigration Minister Lena Diab went to the U.K. & Ireland in April to attract doctors to come work in Nova Scotia. Of the 18 coming, 15 are general practitioners and 3 are specialists.
