Allan MacMaster

AllanDSC00103tng.jpgAsk Inverness MLA Allan MacMaster the quintessential Cape Breton question, "What's your father's name?", and he'll answer Buddy, yes, that Buddy.

While Allan may not share his famous father's passion for playing the fiddle, he does share a passion for politics. And he learned the political ropes from another accomplished fiddler, former Premier Rodney MacDonald. He was his executive assistant for seven years and when Rodney stepped down, he stepped up and ran for the seat, winning it last Fall.

Now, the 36 year old Rookie MLA is playing his own tune.
