Today Premier Tim Houston and 18 Cabinet Ministers were sworn in to form Nova Scotia's new Government. Steve Craig, PC and MLA for Sackville-Cobequid was appointed Minister of Fisheries & Aquaculture.
Premier Houston appointed a separate Minister of Agriculture, Greg Morrow., so that portfolio is no longer combined with Fisheries & Aquaculture.
