Billy Joe MacLean
What can you say about Billy Joe MacLean? He's a character - a straight-talker - a storyteller. An entrepreneur, a bar-owner - a former MLA & cabinet minister. A big Tory.
Not everything's all hunkey-dorey with Billy Joe's life story, though. Back in the 80s, he was expelled from the legislature for expense account fraud.
But these days: he's one of the longest-serving elected officials in Nova Scotia. He has so much support as the Mayor of Port Hawkesbury - no one even bothered to run against him in the last municipal election.
Steve Sutherland talked with Billy Joe this summer at his office in the Civic Centre.
