MP Says Government Doesn't Invest In Northern NB

The building of a west-east pipeline bringing Alberta crude to the Port City has drawn comparisons to the national railway, with premier David Alward saying it would revolutionize Saint John and the rest of the province. But one MP says the government has a history of not investing in one particular area.
Acadie-Bathurst MP Yvon Godin tells CHSJ News they constantly hear announcements about investments, but never see any money. He says they don't even have proper travel infrastructure, making it difficult to get around.

Godin says he doesn't see the government helping the people living in the northern region at all, and if nothing changes, residents will have to leave the area.
