Nurses Union President Speaks Out On Poverty

The President of the New Brunswick Nurses Union says the province should be doing more on poverty. 

Marilyn Quinn is speaking out after spending three days making do on what she received in a basket from the food bank.

Quinn says the food she had is mean't to prevent hunger but does not promote good nutrition and she tells CHSJ News if you don't eat well, you're not going to reach your full potential. 

The annual Vital Signs report will be released tomorrow at which time we will find out what the poverty rate is locally.
