Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil has announced he is stepping down as premier and Liberal party leader.

The premier said today that after 17 years in provincial politics, it's time to do something else.

He says he loves the job, but that he was all set to leave in April, but the COVID-19 pandemic put his plans on hold.

McNeil says he will stay on until a new leader is chosen.

He was elected premier in 2013 and was re-elected in 2017.
