K'jipuktuk (Halifax) - As Nova Scotia prepares for a provincial election, yesterday premier Darrell Dexter addressed a labour day crowd in the Halifax Commons.

The New Democrats appear to have been the only party invited to speak to the gathered crowd and despite a traditional allegiance between organized labour and what is ostensibly the people's party in the province, it appears that the proverbial honeymoon is over.

Sending paramedics to binding arbitration in early July is an act that has left a bitter taste in many union mouths, and I was curious to see what Dexter felt separated his NDP party from the provincial Liberals and Tories.
