West Nova MP Greg Kerr is “getting better and better each day.”
Arnold LeBlanc, Kerr’s regional executive assistant, said on Feb. 14 that the 65-year-old is recovering well from a minor stroke in mid-January.
Greg Kerr's office sent out a release Jan. 25 to explain why the Conservative Member of Parliament had cancelled some appearances.
LeBlanc said Kerr continues to have blurred vision, but is following medical advice and improving daily.
“I suspect he will be away from his normal duties for several weeks, but he hopes to be back about it before too long. You don’t want to rush it,” LeBlanc said.
“I have been visiting him at home and (he) briefs me on the issues. By communicating with him on a regular basis, we’re taking care of business.”
LeBlanc said Kerr’s “spirits are good,” and he looks forward to getting back to public duties.
Kerr has represented the riding since 2008. He was a provincial MLA from 1978 to 1993 and served in cabinet for 13 years, including eight as minister of finance.
