Very good comment but just heard Mr Bacon has passed away and a great gentleman he was!
Sympathy to his family and I enjoyed him every time I met him including on his own turf in Cumberland County! Both John Hamm and Roger Bacon where great Premiers!

Sad news of the passing of Roger Bacon,fmr NS Premier + long time Minister in the PC Govt. A true man of the people, farmer, passionate environmentalist and a remarkably humble compassionate man. Condolences to Patricia and the entire family. He lived a full and meaningful life.
