The ABCs of Change
A chorus of calls for change has intensified across Nova Scotia as our bleak long-term economic and demographic outlook has been more deeply absorbed into the public consciousness.
In a province where past opportunities to embrace change have faltered through process or lack of public support, the oneNS Coalition views these calls as a very promising, hopeful sign for Nova Scotia’s future.

The gradual shift in the public’s inclination towards change has been preceded by an extended period of declining opportunities for many Nova Scotians. It has been difficult to watch the outmigration of our talented young workers and the often painful impact their departures have on their families and communities.
But there is an upside to the predicament in which Nova Scotia finds itself today: We have never been better positioned to launch transformational changes aimed at expanding economic growth and stabilizing our negative demographic trends.
