Chase Attacks Harper Government Record In City

The Liberal candidate in Saint John, Stephen Chase has opened his campaign office on Union Street and launched an attack on the record of the Harper Government in the city.

He tells CHSJ News while the federal government is contributing to Harbour Cleanup, there has been no commitment to help provide safe, clean drinking water. Chase maintains it was former Liberal M-P Paul Zed who did most of the leg work in securing the money for Harbour Cleanup while the Harper Government delivered the cheque.

He also complains the Harper government has not been forthcoming with funding for the port's deteroriating wharves on the lower west side, the airport or upgrading the Trade and Convention Centre whereas ports, airports and convention centres in other cities have received lots of federal money.
