The Dartmouth North Liberal Association will be presenting a scholarship to a student at Dartmouth High School again this year. A visible sign of our commitment to the youth in our community. The scholarship is named for Mary Kelly, one of our longest serving volunteers and a retired teacher in Dartmouth.
Joanne hopes to be on hand to make the presentation and see all the students move on to the next phase of their life’s journey.

PREMIER’S OFFICE–Statement from the Premier on the Passing of Allan Rowe
On behalf of all Nova Scotians I want to express my profound sympathies to the family of Dartmouth South MLA Allan Rowe.
Sadly, Allan passed away early today, March 16.
Allan will always be remembered for his deep commitment to community and his incredible capacity for hard work. His career path led him from the drilling rig Ocean Ranger to a long stint as a well-known radio and television broadcaster and eventually to the Legislative Assembly in 2013. He served as government caucus whip and was respected and admired by all of our members and staff.
Allan’s family has asked me to pass on their sincere appreciation to the dedicated staff at Dartmouth General Hospital and the Halifax Infirmary for their support and to thank all those who have sent their sympathies and prayers over the last three weeks.
At this very difficult time, Allan’s family has asked for privacy as they mark his passing.
Thanks to the volunteers who put it together, the staff of the Ship Victory who work so hard to make our event possible and the guests who make it work.
Joanne Bernard and Geoff Regan spoke eloquently about the Liberal values that bind us all together and the upcoming federal election. Joanne shared with us news of her trip to Ottawa and the need for an inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women. As well, the Between the Bridges program that will be coming to Dartmouth North to address the ongoing deficits in learning and social development for Dartmouth North youth.
Geoff Regan compared the compassion of Joanne Bernard to the divisive policies of the Harper Government and the need for Hope and Hard Work ahead.
We are pleased to announce the schedule for our 2015 Regional Policy Meeting. The purpose of the regional policy meeting is for each region to decide upon the policy piece they would like to have voted on at the provincial AGM. All provincial ridings are encouraged to take part in this process.
We hope Dartmouth North Liberal members are able to attend the meeting for our area.
