Liberal MLA Dalhousie-Restigouche East Donald Arsenault on Tory broken promises

Broken promises was the theme of the day this afternoon during the budget debate in the Legislature. Opposition Leader Victor Boudreau hammered at the Alward government for over an hour, citing a list of Tory lies comprising four pages.

"They promised the moon while in Opposition," said Boudreau.

While the Conservative MLA's hemmed and hawed at Boudreau's claims, he rhymed off a list that included the failure to cut ambulance fees, the misinformation of the property tax freeze, misuse of the government plane and as yet unfulfilled catastrophic drug coverage, to name a few.

Liberal MLA for Dalhousie-Restigouche East, Donald Arsenault, spoke on behalf of his colleagues after today's session ended.
