It appears Prime Minister Stephen Harper is coming to Truro this week and is expected to bring a cheque for the region’s long-discussed civic centre project.?

A source tells the Truro Daily News bureaucrats and police or security officials scouted the Colchester Legion Stadium during the past week.

The visit leads many to believe Harper will be making the announcement at the rink if it fits the security bill.

Part of the civic centre funding is going to renovate the stadium.?

“We are expecting some special guests in town Thursday,” Cumberland Colchester Musquodoboit Valley MP Scott Armstrong said.
