MORELL-FORTUNE BAY (2)

 

Candidates:
PC: Kevin MacAdam
Liberal: Larry McGuire
NDP:  

Current MLA: Kevin MacAdam (PC)

District Profile: Most of this riding runs along the northeastern shore, but it also runs down to the eastern shore of the Island including Fortune Bay. With both Fortune Bay and St Peter’s Bay in its boundaries, this riding counts aquaculture as a major industry. Blueberries make up an increasing amount of the agriculture in this riding, and the Wyman’s blueberry processing plant is located in Morell (pop.332).

Recent provincial investments in the riding include the Links at Crowbush Cove, a top-rated golf course which attracted a five-star resort.

In October 2000, Kevin MacAdam resigned as an MLA to run as a candidate in the federal election for the national Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. He was unsuccessful in that election and returned to provincial politics. In a byelection on February 26, 2001, he was re-elected as MLA for Morell-Fortune Bay.
