Dr. Parrot calls out Minister Keir over NB Power

Jack Keir's feet are being held to the fire by the Conservative candidate in the riding of Fundy River Valley.

Dr. Jim Parrot says the energy minister should be ashamed of statements he made about NB Power when the Liberal Government was trying to sell it's assets to Hydro Quebec. Parrot says both Keir and the Premier said the sale had to be completed by April 1st to avoid a rate increase.

He tells CHSJ News he thinks Keir was playing fast and loose to avoid news of NB Power's profits getting out.

Parrot says Minister Keir lied to the entire Province on this matter and that faith has been lost in the Liberal Government.
