Early life

Zann migrated with her parents to Nova Scotia, Canada in 1968, and later attended Cobequid Educational Centre, a high school in Truro, Nova Scotia which was then notable for its student musical productions. Zann attended York University in Toronto for her post-secondary education, studying Drama, Fine Arts, and Political Science. Zann moved back to her hometown of Truro in 2008 while still retaining apartments in New York City, Vancouver, and Toronto.[1]

In September 2008, Zann announced her commitment to restore a former academic building in downtown Truro, the Provincial Normal College, into a cultural centre.[2]

Political career

On April 8, 2009 the Nova Scotia New Democratic Party announced that Zann would be the party's candidate in the electoral district of Truro-Bible Hill. On the same day, an employee of the Liberal Party leaked a topless photo of her to the media from her appearance in The L Word.[3] On June 9, 2009, she won the seat in the general election.[4]

Zann is the Ministerial Assistant for the Department of Tourism, Culture, and Heritage.[5]
