"I voted for Peter MacKay, but I would have a hard time voting for him anymore," said Linda MacDonald of Westville as she sat in a local coffee shop.
"I have watched him on many issues turn about face.... That's a real issue with me right now."
...the news director for New Glasgow radio station CKEC, Carleton Munroe, said MacKay's latest troubles follow a string of bad news in his riding.Stephane Dion was out of his mind to not run a Liberal, hey?
Ottawa's decision to cut funding for the Canada Summer Jobs program - a decision that was largely reversed amid loud protests - and the recent closure of the TrentonWorks railcar plant in nearby Trenton have hurt MacKay.
The plant closure resulted in the loss of more than 1,400 jobs, including more than 300 permanent positions.
As a result, Munroe said MacKay can no longer take the riding for granted.
"He will have to work at it more than any other election that he's had to up to this point," said Munroe.
