Liberal Opposition leader Victor Boudreau comments on State of Province Address


“We were very disappointed at the lack of substance in the premier’s speech. We were expected some details on a plan to create jobs, because he’s been promising that now for 18 months. Unfortunately it was another missed opportunity for the premier. The speech was long on rhetoric and short on details and specifics. It’s also hard to listen to him say things like poverty reduction is a priority for him. His government has completely ignored the poverty reduction plan. They’ve turned their backs on New Brunswickers who need them the most, our seniors, our children, those living in poverty and those looking for a good job. Once again the premier had nothing to offer ordinary New Brunswickers.”
