Lodaidh MacFhionghain

...de la Daily News (Halifax):

"A friend of Premier Rodney MacDonald who once ran for Parliament as a Progressive Conservative will head up the province's Office of Gaelic Affairs.

Deputy Premier Angus MacIsaac appointed Lewis MacKinnon yesterday to be the office's first permanent chief executive officer. The job pays $80,740...

...MacKinnon's resume reads like he was made for the job. A self-taught speaker of Gaelic, he served seven years as president of Comhairle na Gàidhlig//Gaelic Council of Nova Scotia. He assists as a language instructor, and is working on a Gaelic language master's degree through St. Francis Xavier University's department of Celtic studies."
