Bill Casey – Economic Development

Cumberland County has tremendous untapped potential for economic growth and with Nova Scotia poised for a strong recovery, Cumberland North Liberal candidate Bill Casey wants to see the county share in that prosperity. With every indication there will be a Liberal Government after August 17th, Casey said it is important to have a strong voice at the table. “I will continue to work closely with our dynamic municipal leaders to maximize our strengths” Casey added. Included in Casey’s list of priorities for the constituency are:

Working collaboratively with our business community through the Cumberland Business Connector, CBDC, Amherst and Area Chamber of Commerce, Town of Amherst and Municipality of Cumberland
Exploring the potential for expansion of the Amherst and Area Industrial Park to attract new business and help existing businesses looking to expand

Assisting the Town of Amherst to realize its vision of construction of a new multi-purpose community complex
Working co-operatively with both the Federal and Provincial officials to make the case for Cumberland County as one of the country’s hydrogen hubs

Ensuring our historic and heritage properties get equal billing to similar projects in other parts of the province
Working to have tolls lifted for all commercial vehicles to level the playing field for Cumberland County businesses transporting goods to and from Halifax.

Fostering tourism and business growth for the port communities of Pugwash, Northport, Wallace, Malagash and Tidnish with establishment of a “Northumberland Port Trail” to create a destination area for Cumberland North
Joining with those in the agricultural sector to ensure food security and promote “buy local”.

A Rankin Government also has a plan to assist businesses by investing in innovation, green technology, and red-tape reduction. Innovation is the key to relevance in a post-pandemic world. Our plan for Nova Scotia businesses includes $45 million over five years to renew the Sustainability Innovation Rebate Program, which will:

Provide a 25 per cent rebate for businesses developing innovative solutions that increase their global relevance.
Support the purchase of green technology that modernizes business production. Secure good middle-class jobs by supporting companies in traditional and emerging sectors.

Help Nova Scotia businesses to sell more of their products in the province and around the world.

News Release | Childcare Initiative

Bill Casey on Childcare Initiative

Cumberland North Liberal Candidate Bill Casey says building a strong foundation for our children and grandchildren through quality early learning and child care will result in healthier and more prosperous communities for generations to come.   He says it is also an important element in lifting families out of poverty.    “Our party has a childcare plan that will be a game-changer for areas like Cumberland where families rely on child care in order to work and make a living.” Casey added.    The Rankin government’s childcare plan will:

  • Lower the cost of childcare by an average of 50%, bringing the average cost of childcare to $10 a day. 
  • Add 9,500 new childcare spaces across the province by 2026.  
  • Introduce better pay and benefits for early childhood educators (ECEs) by 2022. 
  • Grow and develop the ECE workforce by providing students and working ECEs with funding for tuition and books. 
  • Increase diversity in early childhood education by designating seats in early childhood education for Mi’kmaq, Indigenous peoples, Black and African Nova Scotians, Acadian and Francophone Nova Scotians, and newcomers.

Casey said he recognizes the importance of affordable quality child care on a personal level having a daughter who is a single working mother with a young child.   The Cumberland North Liberal candidate added the COVID-19 pandemic created particular hardship for young families and a recent report shows in the year from February 2020, 12 times as many women as men stopped working because of child-care responsibilities.

News Release | Liberal Health Care Strategy

Bill Casey – Liberal Health Care Strategy

Cumberland North Liberal candidate Bill Casey believes that despite the challenges faced by every province in this country to address health care concerns, Nova Scotia Liberals under leader Iain Rankin have laid out a clear vision to steer us in the right direction.  That vision includes increasing access to primary care, new investments in mental health and addictions, modernizing and improving long term care, and enhancing homecare services.  Physician recruitment also remains a high priority.  A Liberal Government will deliver results:

  • Prior to the election, the Liberal government ensured family doctors will be the highest paid in Atlantic Canada, after a $135 million salary increase.  
  • They have added 16 new seats at Dalhousie Medical School and 10 new residency spaces in family medicine. This will train new doctors right here in Nova Scotia.
  • A Rankin Government is committed to creating a new Office of Physician Recruitment & Retention, comprised of highly trained recruitment professionals who will be deployed internationally to bring home the doctors best suited for Nova Scotia communities.
  • The funding and resources dedicated to this new office will effectively double the budget for doctor recruitment in Nova Scotia.
  • There are already 80 new doctors lined up to start before the end of the year.
  • The Liberals have previously announced $152.6 million to renovate and replace over 2,000 long term care beds in 24 facilities across the province. In total, we plan to add 500 additional beds in communities with the greatest demand.
  • We are also pledging to reduce to 60 days the average wait times for seniors to get s spot in homes, which is currently around six months.
  • We will provide incentives to attract primary care providers such as the Nurse Practitioner Education Incentive which has seen improved access to primary care in areas such as Cumberland County. 
  • Construction has started on a new, modern health-care facility for Pugwash representing an investment of $25 million.

Casey added he is committed to work for continued improvements in the delivery of health care services in Cumberland North.   “I hope to bring the experience and knowledge I have gained during my time as the Chair of the Commons Standing Committee on Health Care to the provincial level.” he said.

News Release | Emancipation Day

Bill Casey on Emancipation Day

Cumberland North Liberal Candidate Bill Casey is urging Cumberland County residents to take time this Sunday August 1st to celebrate an important historical event as the African Nova Scotian Community  commemorates Emancipation Day. This is the first year that Nova Scotia is officially recognizing the day. August 1st is known as Emancipation Day around the world. It is the anniversary of British parliament’s decision to abolish slavery across its empire in 1834.

Casey points out that African Nova Scotia heritage is deeply rooted in this county and that people of African descent have left a lasting legacy with their contributions to the building of our communities. “We are indebted to them for their perseverance, dedication and commitment, despite having to overcome tremendous odds and face discrimination and racism.”   Casey also alluded to the sacrifice and bravery of the many black soldiers from this area who left behind their families and enlisted to serve their country in the First and Second World Wars. 

The first blacks to arrive in Cumberland County in the 1770’s were slaves in the possession of military officers who had fought with the British forces in the taking of Fort Beausejour. While never in large numbers, slaves were brought to the area to work as domestics and agricultural labourers.  

Descendants of some of the founding families still reside in this county today. including names such as Cooke, Davidson, Dorrington, Fairfax, Martin, Gabriel, Halfkenny, Jones, Lee, Parsons, Reid, Silvea, Treadwell, Riley, Paris and Milligan.   Casey added they have been community builders excelling in education, law, medicine, politics, law enforcement, fire protection, the trades, agriculture, mining, the fishery and athletics.  

“While we celebrate the contribution of our African Nova Scotian brothers and sisters on this Emancipation Day, it is also a time to reflect and learn.   The true story of their struggle and sacrifice through slavery has never been told in our history books and needs to be told.”  Casey added.   

The Cumberland North Liberal candidate said as MLA he would work to ensure the continued support of organizations in this constituency promoting and sustaining African Nova Scotia culture and heritage.   As an MP, Casey not only promoted, but participated in several African Nova Scotian Heritage Month events in Cumberland County.

News Release | Environmental Strategy

Bill Casey – Environmental Strategy

Cumberland County has the potential to become the greenest county in the country which would result in significant economic benefits for the local area.   Cumberland North Liberal Candidate Bill Casey says he would be striving to make that happen if he is elected to the Nova Scotia Legislature in the August 17th provincial election.    Casey brings a wealth of experience and knowledge on environmental issues to the table with his work at the federal level.   The former MP says this county should be a leader in the further development of renewable energy sources like wind, solar, tidal and geothermal.   Casey says he will also be working to promote Cumberland County as one of Canada’s hydrogen hubs.  

Over the last three years, Natural Resources Canada has been engaging with stakeholder groups, provincial and territorial governments and Indigenous partners to develop a strategy that will set us on the path to meet our climate change goals of becoming net-zero by 2050.  This will position Canada as a world-leading producer, user and exporter of clean hydrogen, and associated technologies.   

“I want to see Nova Scotia and in particular Cumberland County tapping into these federal incentives that come with a hydrogen hub”, Casey added.

The Cumberland North Liberal candidate says it is also critical that the region addresses our most pressing environmental concern right now which is rising sea levels that threaten the marshland dykes on the Isthmus of Chignecto.   “Our transportation corridor is very vulnerable and it would be an economic catastrophe if this link were compromised in any way” he said.  

Casey believes that with his well-established connections with politicians and bureaucrats at all levels of government, he will be able to make inroads on the environmental front.  “I have worked collaboratively with the Premiers of both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the past and I have had a good working relationship with both Mayors Murray Scott and David Kogon.”     

Casey added that Canada’s energy sector is critical to supporting the restart and recovery of the Canadian economy as it emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.  “This county can play a major role in that recovery”, he concluded.

Offering for Cumberland North

Hi All
 
I have decided to run in the next provincial election as a Liberal candidate for Cumberland North. This follows my seven terms in parliament and now I will be focusing on Cumberland North issues in Halifax.
 
Often the people of Cumbe
rland County do not feel like part of Nova Scotia and I hope to help change that if elected. The toll highway is one policy that causes this sense of separation but there are other areas of cooperation needed to promote Cumberland North economic opportunities, quality of life, and unique historic sites.
 
One focus that I will have is on the amazing renewable energy sources in Cumberland County and ensure that the government explores every opportunity to utilize the solar, wind, geo-thermal and tidal energies as the planet seeks conversion to zero emission energy sources. No county in Canada has the wide array of alternative energies that Cumberland County has. I am fortunate to be able to work with my former colleagues in the federal government, municipal governments and the provincial government to ensure that Cumberland North plays a significant role in Canada’s zero emission future.
Rising sea levels in Cumberland North and Westmorland County threaten rail lines, highways, and communication links to all of Nova Scotia. A washed out rail line in Cumberland North would jeopardize the Port of Halifax and CNs recently announced direct link from Halifax to 
Mexico City. As MP, I worked with three governments and three mayors to help arrange a federal-provincial engineering study on this issue and I will continue to work on protectin
g this vulnerable transportation link.
 
The recent Covid restrictions have highlighted the close connection between New Brunswick and Cumberland County. It is time for more shared services between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. I will attempt to bring a better understanding in Halifax that Cumberland County is directly affected by policies of two provinces in a way that no other Nova Scotia county is impacted.
 
I believe that my experience and connections working for Conservative, NDP, and Liberal governments will help highlight local issues and I look forward to using a cooperative approach to raise the profile and well being of Cumberland North. I have had a number of great discussions with Premier Rankin and look forward to working with him.
 
We are assembling a great team. Any one wishing to be a part of the team, please send me an email at billcaseyliberal2021@gmail.com or on Facebook @BillCaseyNS . We will soon have an office set up and a phone to call for answers.
 
Yes, Rosie totally agrees with this decision.
 
Thanks,
Bill

Distorted RCMP Competition Should Be Re-done

One disappointing aspect of the Nova Scotia RCMP Emergency Call Center issue is that an agency of the Government of Canada can blatantly misrepresent information on a significant competition …. and everyone looks the other way.
Attachment #1 is a copy of the RCMP Score Chart used to determine the location for the Nova Scotia RCMP 911 police emergency call center. The RCMP wanted Option #4 (80 Garland Ave, Dartmouth)  to win the competition, so they assigned a rental cost of $0 to that option. Zero rent. However…….
Attachment #2 is the Public Works rental agreement for the 80 Garland Avenue building which says the “Total Annual Rent” is $10,498,133.40. That works out to be exactly $547 per square meter.
Attachment #3 is from an internal RCMP document which also says “the current rental rate for the space is $547 per square meter”.
Both Public Works documents and RCMP documents confirm that the rental rate for the Option #4 building is $547 per sq meter.
However, the RCMP inserted the rental rate of $0 (ZERO) in order to ensure that the proposal #4 by Millbrook First Nation (and others) was not competitive. It is not possible to compete with $0 rent.
Back on Attachment #1, you will see that the RCMP unilaterally charged a false expense of $1,641,000 to the Millbrook proposal #4. You will note that all of the proposals were charged this false charge of $1,641,000…. except the one proposal that the RCMP wanted to win.  This charge is entirely false, has nothing to do with Millbrook, but it makes the Millbrook proposal not competitive again.
Millbrook First Nation was the first to submit a proposal to provide this facility. In my view, distorting the expense numbers is simply cheating a First Nation out of a fair chance to compete on a significant economic opportunity. The RCMP is an agency of the Government of Canada and it seems to me that the Government of Canada should have higher standards.
National Chief Perry Bellegarde has now added his voice to those of us who are calling for this competition to be done over again, but with no pre-determined outcome…. and no false expenses. He has actually extended an olive branch to the RCMP and I hope that they accept it.
If you have any questions, let me know.
Finally, look at the photo of the 80 Garland Avenue Building which the RCMP now says is “free”. Does it look like a free building to you?
It is never too late to do the right thing.
Thank you,
Bill Casey 902 397 1305 billcasey45@hotmail.com

National Chief Perry Bellegarde Adds His Voice

Attached is a letter from National Chief Perry Bellegard to RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki regarding the Nova Scotia RCMP competitive process to determine a new site for the Nova Scotia RCMP 911 Emergency Call Center.
He is urging the RCMP to have this process re-done but this time with no distorted expenses and no pre-determined outcome.

Disastrous Beirut Explosion Proves a Point



Disasters like the horrific explosion in Beirut are the exact reason why the 2004 RCMP Expert Panel outright rejected Halifax Regional Municipality as the location for the RCMP 911 emergency communication center in Nova Scotia.

Disasters like the horrific explosion in Beirut are also why all leading authorities in emergency communications require that there to be “geographic separation” between 911 emergency communication centers.

The proposed RCMP plan to eliminate “geographic separation” in Nova Scotia by co-locating both major police 911 communication centers in one community does not meet those international standards and puts all Nova Scotians at unnecessary risk. It is a sub-standard emergency communications system.

Disasters like the horrific explosion in Beirut are also why all leading authorities like Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Emergency Number Association reject locations near dangerous facilities. A quote from the FEMA Manual specifically says that 911 emergency communication centers should not be “near hazardous materials sites or nuclear power facilities”.

Ironically, the RCMP are proposing to put their 911 emergency communication center exactly between the Department of National Defense Ammunition Storage facility, and the Canadian Forces Base Shearwater nuclear submarine dock in Dartmouth. This is the ultimate “hazardous materials site”, and the CFB nuclear submarine base hosts nuclear subs from Britain, U.S. and France. The RCMP co-location plan exactly contravenes the FEMA standards and is a sub-standard emergency communications system.

Below you can see the quotes from abridged CBC articles describing just some of the risks to Nova Scotia stressed by DND and FEMA.

Under the RCMP plan, both emergency communication centers and the RCMP Headquarters would all be in the same community which could mean a total province-wide breakdown of emergency communication and emergency leadership at the time that they are needed most.

The attached maps show the system adopted in 2004 compared the proposed sub-standard system that will place where the three major police emergency response facilities on one community against all international standards.

Map 3 shows the concentration of the three 911 emergency communication and RCMP management facilities which will be surrounded by hazardous materials sites and nuclear submarine facilities. This is the opposite of international standards.

Ask yourself…does it make sense to concentrate all of the Nova Scotia police emergency communication and police leadership in one community?

Does it make sense to locate them all next to the greatest concentration of hazardous materials sites and risks in Atlantic Canada?

Is Nova Scotia just Halifax Regional Municipality?


This RCMP decision was made in order to fill some empty office space in the Dartmouth RCMP building and proves that the RCMP places office preferences as a higher priority than emergency communications safety. Experience has proven that emergency communications should be considered the top priority, not an inconvenience.

I urge all politicians at all levels to be informed about the risks surrounding this sub-standard 911 emergency communication plan for Nova Scotia, and speak out against this dangerous RCMP move if they agree that Nova Scotia should not have all of our emergency eggs in one dangerous basket.

Catastrophic fire ‘will likely occur’ at Halifax explosives depot, military report says

Military officials say risk of a fire might be high, but the risk of an explosion is low



Brett Ruskin · CBC News · Posted: Feb 09, 2017 6:00 AM AT | Last Updated: February 9, 2017



Death, property destruction and severe environmental damage could result from a fire that “will likely occur sometime” at an ammunition depot in the Halifax area, according to an internal military report.


The military assessed the fire risk for the Canadian Forces Ammunition Depot in Bedford, N.S., and prepared a report in 2015 that was recently obtained by CBC News.

It concluded a fire will likely occur there, could be “catastrophic,” and “may cause death of personnel, severe loss of operational capability, destruction of property or severe environmental damage.”


“But if you have an entire magazine building go up, you’re going to be causing damage for kilometres,” he told CBC News.

The depot’s own emergency response guide says non-essential personnel should evacuate 800 to 1,300 metres from fires involving Class 1.1 explosives. That evacuation radius would include Magazine Hill — a major traffic artery near Bedford — as well as part of a residential area.


A source with knowledge of potential risks at the site, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said an evacuation resulting from a serious fire at the Canadian Forces Ammunition Depot in Bedford could affect everything within a five-kilometre radius.


“I would evacuate all of Bedford, half of Sackville, all of Burnside, Fairview, and [the north end] up to the Macdonald Bridge,” the source said.

Halifax has a history of explosive events — most notably the explosion in 1917 following a collision in the harbour involving two ships. There was also a lesser-known incident at CFAD Bedford in 1945. A fire started on the jetty, which sparked a series of explosions that lasted two days and blew out nearly every window in the city.


Bill’s Note: Such an evacuation would include evacuating the proposed RCMP Emergency Communication Center and the RCMP Management and Headquarters FIRST. Who would then manage and co-ordinate public evacuations and emergencies if these two offices were closed first under this planned evacuation? Crazy plan.

RCMP Brush Aside Their Own Safety Warnings

 

RCMP Brush Aside Their Own Safety Warnings

In 2004, the RCMP commissioned an Expert Panel to determine the best location for their 911 Emergency Call and Dispatch Center (OCC) in Nova Scotia. The resulting comprehensive 91 page RCMP Expert Panel report chose Truro as the best location.

This same RCMP Expert Panel ruled out only one community in Nova Scotia as “too risky” to be considered as a location for the OCC….Halifax Regional Municipality. This safety warning about HRM was repeated three times in the RCMP report. The main reason for the warning was the close proximity to the other Nova Scotia OCC.

Contrary to these warnings, the RCMP now want to solve an empty office space problem in their Dartmouth HQ building by moving the OCC to the Dartmouth.

In order to justify contravening these repeated safety warnings, the RCMP performed another in-house study in 2017 which has only one mention about safety. The 2017 RCMP study says

“Security risks outlined in the 2004 Report have since been assessed by RCMP Departmental Security, and are no longer a risk to relocating to the Halifax Region”.

In June 2019, I applied through Access To Information for a copy of the “assessment by the RCMP Departmental Security” referred to in the 2017 study, as well as research and data to support this statement.

The RCMP response to my ATIP came last week on June 11, 2020 and is attached. The ATIP response says:

“ The RCMP is not in possession of a Departmental Security Report that analyses the risks outlined in the 2004 study that explains why these risks are no longer applicable”.

The RCMP has no record of the analysis of how these risks have become “no longer applicable”. The RCMP has brushed aside a 91 page RCMP Expert Panel Report with one sentence for which they have no supporting documentation, research or data.

Although the 2017 RCMP report says that the Halifax risks identified in the 2004 RCMP report have now evaporated, events have proven them wrong.

In the last six months, Dartmouth has experienced it’s first earthquakes; Nova Scotia is in lock down for the first time ever due to a Global pandemic; months ago coastal communities including Halifax suffered terrific damage from Hurricane Dorian; and Nova Scotia has just experienced the worst shooting in Canada’s history. To say that the risks in the Halifax Region have all vanished is just not true.

Other federal, provincial and municipal governments do not agree that the risks to Halifax Regional Municipality “are no longer applicable”.

Halifax Regional Council recently declared a “climate emergency” as “a serious and urgent threat”. “HRM staff report identifies risks to Halifax and other coastal communities that include threats to physical infrastructure like buildings, roads, bridges and railways, energy supplies, water and wastewater infrastructure, damage from flooding, high winds, saltwater intrusion and coastal erosion. “

Why is the RCMP moving all of our safety eggs to one basket?

The Government of Nova Scotia Department of Environment says the risk is higher for coastal communities. “We can expect warmer average temperatures, rising sea levels, and more-frequent extreme storms. Nova Scotia is particularly susceptible to these changes because most of our population lives along the coastline, and much of our infrastructure is located in vulnerable areas. ”

Why move the OCC to a “coastal community” resulting on both of Nova Scotia’s OCCs being in that same coastal community? This is the reason that the 2004 RCMP Expert Panel issued the warnings about co-locating in HRM. Nothing has changed.

 says “The Atlantic region is subject winter cyclonic storms, tropical cyclones and other severe weather events. There is evidence of recent trends toward greater extremes and higher frequencies of such events. “ Weather threats are getting worse and more often.

Even the latest report of the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) says emergency communications systems “face more risks and threats than ever before”.

What the RCMP are not making pubic is that Public Works Canada has threatened the RCMP with substantial fines ($164,100 per year, from an ATIP) if they continue to refuse to allow Public Works Canada to rent vacant the space to other government departments. This space has been vacant for seven years already.

The selection process for a new OCC should be done over again with only safety of Nova Scotians, RCMP officers, and first responders as the main priority……….. not preferred office space. The safety of emergency communications was not the first priority in this RCMP decision and it should be.

I have shared this ATIP response and my concerns with Commissioner Brenda Lucki, Commissioner of the RCMP, and the federal Minister of Public Safety, Hon Bill Blair. Please feel free to ask them how the risks originally identified by the RCMP have suddenly evaporated.

If you need more information, I have a considerable file. I still have two outstanding ATIP requests in the system and I expect those answers soon. RCMP ATIPs are supposed to take 60 days but the RCMP do not always comply with the Access to Information laws. Some RCMP ATIPs have taken over two years to get a response, and then are heavily redacted.

Thank you,

The ATIP response below says that the RCMP does have a copy of the Report on Feasibility Study of RCMP H Division Operational Communication Centre dated August 31st, 2017. This is the 2017 report that says security risks “are no longer a risk” and brushes aside the three warnings in the 2004 report.
