SYDNEY, N.S. - A Cape Breton MLA is in hospital with a serious infection.

The Progressive Conservative Party of Nova Scotia issued a statement on Saturday saying that Alfie MacLeod is receiving treatment at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital in Sydney.

The 58-year-old represents the riding of Sydney River-Mira-Louisbourg.

MacLeod says in the statement that he is committed to resuming his MLA duties as soon as possible but that his health and family must come first.
