Nova Scotia country singer George Canyon to run for Conservatives

One of Nova Scotia's best-known country music stars is walking on to the political stage. George Canyon has announced he's running as a Conservative candidate in the riding of Central Nova in the upcoming federal election. His name was added to the Tory roster after existing candidate Roger MacKay dropped out this week, for what he said were "personal reasons." Canyon has won several Juno and Canadian Country Music Association awards for his work. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has made multiple stops in the Atlantic provinces already this summer, and for his part, Canyon said he's eager to get going. The federal election will be held on October 21st.
