Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil announced on Thursday that he is stepping down as premier and Liberal party leader, saying after 17 years in provincial politics, “it’s time to do something else.” McNeil said he would stay on until a new leader is elected.
“I’ve always believed governing is not about power, but about purpose.” McNeil said at a press briefing held after a cabinet meeting.
The premier says he looked at stepping down earlier, but then the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
“I’ve always believed leadership matters, leadership is important but it needs to change. It can’t stay the same for the health of the organization and the province.”
