SHUBENACADIE: It’s going to be an early Spring-so says well-known prognosticator Shubenacadie Sam.

Sam made his prediction before a throng of young and old from across the region at the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park. It is the 30th year for Shubenacadie Sam to make his prediction.

After coming out, Sam didn’t see his shadow, and thus Town Crier for the Municipality of East Hants Anita Benedict declared on Sam’s behalf that an early Spring was forthcoming.

Hants East MLA and Natural Resources Minister Margaret Miller was on hand and spoke a few words, before letting Sam out to make his decision. Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley MLA Larry Harrison and Miller’s Liberal MLA colleague, Bill Horne, were also there.
