Deputy Premier Tom Rideout resigned his cabinet post yesterday over road money that had been agreed upon by Transportation Minister Dianne Whelan. He was informed by the Premier that the amount of $3.5 million for his district was $1 million too much, so Rideout decided to hit the road as DP and Minister of Fisheries & Aquaculture.
Mr. Rideout was first elected to the House of Assembly as MHA in 1975. He served in many capacities during his many years of public service, including a brief time as Premier. Good luck Mr. Rideout and may your own future take you to a road less gravelled.
