Finance Critic Calls For Fiscal Update, Job Summit

With a rise in the province's unemployment rate, the Opposition Liberals are calling for an update from the Finance Minister on the fiscal situation in New Brunswick.

But Finance Critic Roger Melanson tells CHSJ News that's not all that's on their wish list they also want a job summit hosted, something they've been asking about for the last two years.

Melanson says the Alward government doesn't have all of the solutions, and he wants to see different stakeholders from around the province come together and have a serious conversation about how to address the job crisis and financial situation. 

He says the job crisis is affecting the quality of life of New Brunswickers because services are being cut.
