Gosse Taking Time Off Following Cancer Diagnosis, Expects To Return In Fall
A Cape Breton MLA says he’ll be taking time away from his duties to undergo medical treatment. Gordie Gosse, the member for Sydney-Whitney Pier, was diagnosed with cancer last week. In a press release this afternoon, Gosse says the diagnosis was early and the prognosis is good, and he expects to return to the legislature in the fall. The NDP MLA says that his Sydney office will remain open, and he’s assuring people in his community that all constituency work will get done. He adds that he may turn to some of his colleagues for assistance in addressing some of the needs of his constituents. Gosse was re-elected in the newly created Sydney-Whitney Pier riding in October, and has served in the legislature since 2003.
