N.S. premier defends proposal to legislate LED roadway lighting across province
Criticism over proposed legislation to make the use of LED roadway lighting mandatory in Nova Scotia had the premier on the defensive. Darrell Dexter took issue with reported comments by Port Hawkesbury Mayor Billy Joe MacLean, who said the proposed $100-million plan came out of the blue. MacLean, who is also president of the Nova Scotia Union of Municipalities, said that it remained unclear how much it would cost municipalities to pay for the switch.
