Atlantica Party is no more

The Atlantica Party Association of Nova Scotia has said its final good-bye.

In March, Leader Kyle Woodbury said it would be exiting as of April 30th due to a lack of volunteers.

Chief Electoral Officer, Dorothy Rice, has given notice that it voluntarily deregistered as a political party in the province effective Tuesday.

Organized by Jonathan Dean, a financial advisor from Bedford, the Atlantica Party was first registered in 2010 and never won any seats in the provincial legislature.

The party was known for promoting the idea of a Maritime Union.
