The only thing an election at this time seems to accomplish is to get the pandemic out of our heads.
On Saturday, July 17th, Premier Iain Rankin asked his wife, Mary Chisholm, to take a walk to the home of Lieutenant Governor Arthur J. LeBlanc, where he asked him to dissolve the legislature and set a provincial election in motion.
The provincial election will take place on Tuesday, August 17th.
The election campaign must be at least 30 days and on a Tuesday, by law.
