"The Town of Shelburne appreciates the continued support of ACOA in funding the extension of electrical to the Town Wharf located on Dock Street, the residing of the south side of the Osprey Arts Centre and the re-roofing of the local visitor information centre," said Alan Delaney, Mayor of the Town of Shelburne.
Shelburne Mayor Alan Delaney said it is important the town be able to voice its great displeasure over the recommendation stating that the Nova Scotia Electoral Boundaries Commission did not give people in Shelburne County a chance to voice their concerns when they released their report that came as a complete surprise to all.
"This is extremely unsettling and bothersome," said Mayor Delaney. "My council is very displeased." He said that they would be speaking to both the province and the opposition parties to voice outrage at recommending the huge change with no consultation. "Shelburne County deserves an electoral boundary that is not divided," said Mayor Delaney.

18oct2008: Delaney wins in Shelburne by wide margin... Councilor Al Delaney has beaten incumbent, six-term mayor P.G. Comeau by a wide margin, taking 728 (71%) votes to 294(29%) in the town of Shelburne.
Councilor Al Delaney and mayor P.G. Comeau sat at adjoining tables at the Chamber of Commerce Awards banquet, with Comeau sharing supper with his wife and Delaney breaking bread with vocal supporter and SWSDA CEO Frank Anderson. Delaney is known to have offered election day driving jobs to former Comeau supporters and there is some speculation that Delaney may be surprised about unhatched chickens being counted too soon. The suit against the Society and executives Al Delaney and Suzanne and Jim Mahaney was launched after the trio ignored a request to apologize for allegedly slanderous comments about a former director. Generally quasi-government agencies and their employees keep mum in local elections, but Frank Anderson has been very vocal in his support for current councilor Alan Delaney, telling some people that "it's critical that we have a change in Shelburne." In July, the Society wrote a letter to Joint Stocks and others suggesting that the boats should become the private property of directors Alan Delaney and Jim Mahaney , as they had signed funding agreements with public officials. The move to transfer the boats, according to those familiar with the internal workings of the Society, was accomplished at a recent closed meeting of Society directors, all of whom were reportedly sworn to silence by chairman Delaney. The boats played a significant role in the historical reenactment of the Loyalist Landing in Shelburne and plans have been developed to re-create the event on a yearly basis during Founders' Days. However, the boats will be unavailable for Founders' Days in 2009, as it is reported by the 2009 Tall Ships Festival that have been previously promised by the Society for an event that weekend in Halifax. Delaney and the other directors recently failed to file defences in a lawsuit surrounding their alleged defamation of another Society director . 10oct2008: Mayoral campaign gathering steam in Shelburne... the race for mayor of Shelburne looks to be a dead heat, with 8 days to go until the election. Incumbent mayor P.G. Comeau is known to be a hard campaigner and is also know for his "bare-knuckle style". Challenger and current councilman Al Delaney has generated a loyal cadre of supporters, most notable among them the Shelburne Liberal Party "machine" and his cohorts from the Loyalist Landing Society , many of whom can be seen congregating throughout the day at his new Water Street command centre. Delaney has produced a brochure and has placed some campaign signs around town and Comeau has spent heavily on print advertising, including a half-page ad in the Coast Guard. Mayoral candidate Al Delaney and Suzanne and Jim Mahaney are charged in the notice of action filed with the Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Yarmouth on September 15. Delaney and the Mahaney's were sent letters by an attorney requesting a retraction and apology, but the letter was ignored, leading to the current suit. 7oct2008: Mayoral debate goes negative as Comeau's leadership challenged... in what is reported as one of the most feisty campaign debates in some time in Shelburne, Town councilor and mayoral candidate Al Delaney hammered at incumbent P.G Comeau last week about the mayor's lack of leadership and his unwillingness to cooperate with other officials. Apparently reading prewritten answers from questions submitted to moderator Doug Drane by his campaign team, Delaney seemed to hang his campaign on the success of the Loyalist Landing project, complaining that the mayor had not attended the New Year's eve joint levee in Shelburne. Delaney also accused Comeau of undermining the Loyalist Landing celebrations, despite the fact that Comeau had participated in several events during the Grand Reennactment Weekend and Freedom of the City ceremony and had received messages of appreciation and gratitude from Loyalist Landing Weekend organizers, including the Brigade of the American Revolution . Delaney and some of his campaign team are facing a lawsuit connected to their activity regarding the LL2008 Society. >>> see story here 15sept2008: Few surprises and many acclamations in muni elections... Clark's Harbour and Lockeport Mayors unopposed... Shelburne sees Delaney going after Comeau... three new councilors for Shelburne Town, six of seven Shelburne Muni and five of seven Barrington Muni seats contested... >>> more 12aug2008: Loyalist longboats to pass into private hands?... the Loyalist Landing 2008 Society has written to the Nova Scotia government regarding the prospect of the two 18th century longboats built with government funding to become the private property of LL2008 chair and Shelburne Town councilman Al Delaney and project supervisor and LL2008 treasurer Jim Mahaney . In a July 23 memo to the Registry of Joint Stocks , LL2008 secretary Suzanne Mahaney explains that, "although they [the boats] were built for and by the LL2008 Society, it is actually chair Al Delaney and Treasurer Jim Mahaney who signed the documentation and were held responsible , as individuals, for all financial and legal aspects pertaining to the longboats. LL2008 directors contacted by SCT could not recall any discussions or the passing of any motions at LL2008 meetings which would pass ownership of the $50,000 boats to Mahaney and Delaney. Shelburne Councilor Al Delaney , chair of the Loyalist Landing 2008 Society and prime mover behind the grant explained to Council that it was only through the hard work and concentrated effort of Anderson and SWSDA that the crucial monies came to be, but not a peep from Council ensued. Delaney has explained recently in other venues that he believes that this Loyalist grant success may be a perfect example of SWSDA's "bring us workable projects and we'll find the funding" mantra oft repeated over the last few years. Whatever the true genesis of the grant success, and whatever misgivings we have about economic development strategies in the region, we need to give credit where credit is due. Congratulations to SWSDA, Frank Anderson, Economic Development, Councilor Delaney and the Loyalist Landing Society for a job well done! Also rumoured to be considering a run to be named "his or her worship" are councilors Al Delaney and Elizabeth Acker, deputy mayor Tony Mahaney, former port boss Donnie Acker and former Chamber prez Elizabeth Rhuland.
