I am supporting Tim Houston because he is approachable, an excellent listener and is proactive in addressing concerns of Nova Scotians in the house of assembly. He is a proven leader who wants to bring positive change to our province.
Tim's abilities as an excellent leader were demonstrated last year when he advocated for teachers and students during the labour dispute between the province and the teachers. Many items he addressed about education resonated with me in many positive ways. He was tireless in trying to convince the government that change is needed in education, and that supports are needed to both empower teachers and hold students more to account so that our schools can be a place where students can take more ownership and pride themselves on their own learning experiences. I hold many of these principles dear as a teacher and for this reason I am fully endorsing Tim Houston as next Leader of the PC Party.
