Saint Johnners Can Have Their Say On Provincial Budget Tonight

You have the chance tonight to get your two cents worth in on what the upcoming provincial budget should look like. 

Saint John has been chosen as the site for the first pre-budget consultation at the community college on Grandview Avenue and Provincial Finance Minister Blaine Higgs will be on hand to hear what you have to say. 

Mike Davidson of the Canadian Union of Public Employees tells CHSJ News while big businesses in the province have been getting tax breaks, the middle class is at the breaking point.

Davidson argues the provincial government doesn't have a spending problem......It's not generating enough revenue. The public consultation gets underway at 6:30.
