Energy Minister Jack Keir is calling out Opposition Leader David Alward for wanting to keep the Dalhousie Power Plant open.

Keir says this isn't something that has just come about in the last couple weeks.

He says NB Power has been saying for a long time that there is no alternative source of fuel that would make the Dalhousie plant competitive.

Keir says New Brunswickers have asked the government time and time again to keep out of NB Power when it comes to day to day operations, yet here Alward is involving himself.
