Stephen McNeil has just appointed Liberals MLAs who aren’t already ministers to new positions as ministerial assistants. Bill Horne is the new DNR ministerial assistant with a special focus on forestry. See http://nslegislature.ca/index.php/people/members/bill_horne ”
From CH 2013, when the Liberals nominated Horne to run:
Horne served as a Halifax councillor in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He is a retired Environment Canada senior adviser and longtime volunteer with various community, sports and business organizations.
‘Hope to hear from him soon.
