Former Speakers Appointed Honorary Members of Executive Council

Six former Speakers of the House of Assembly have been appointed honorary members of Nova Scotia’s Executive Council.

On Premier Stephen McNeil’s recommendation, Gordie Gosse, Alfie McLeod, Gerald Fogarty, Paul MacEwan, Arthur Donahoe, and George Doucet will have the privilege of using “The Honourable” before their names and the initials ECNS (Executive Council of Nova Scotia) after their names. The honour is bestowed upon them by Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant.

“I’m so pleased to recognize the contributions of these individuals who have all played a critical role in Nova Scotia’s democracy at different points in our history,” said Premier McNeil. “They served with distinction and honour in a role that deserves the same recognition as cabinet members and leaders of the opposition.

“On behalf of all members of the legislature, I thank them for their service to Nova Scotians.”

Premier McNeil made the announcement in the House of Assembly today, Oct. 10. The appointments came into effect on Oct. 3 when they were signed by the lieutenant governor.
