Well-known Tory politician, Sydney River-Mira-Louisbourg MLA Alfie MacLeod, has formally confirmed the news about him receiving treatment at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Communication official with the Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative Party, Jennifer Edge, revealed that he is anticipated to remain in the hospital for a short while until his health issues are resolved.
Edge mentioned that “he’s doing good – he’s alright” and elaborated that “for the most part, everything is personal and private as far as what the details are. He does have a very serious infection – he’ll likely be there for a little while. He just wants his constituents to know that he wasn’t leaving them hanging but that he had to deal with some health matters.”
