Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservatives announce site for fall leadership convention

Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservatives have announced the site for their fall leadership convention.

The party says members will gather October 26th and 27th at the Halifax Exhibition Centre.

Leadership committee co-chairwoman Tara Erskine says the building's large capacity played a role in the selection.

Caucus members Tim Houston, John Lohr, Elizabeth Smith-McCrossin are seeking the party's top job, along with Cape Breton Regional Municipality Mayor Cecil Clarke and Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market executive director Julie Chaisson.
