Premier Bullish On Economic Future Of Province

The sluggish provincial economy is causing Premier David Alward's poll numbers to decline but he remains upbeat about the long term economic future of New Brunswick, claiming it has never looked brighter. 

The Premier tells CHSJ News his government's plan to grow the provincial economy is patterned after what was done in Saskatchewan with what he calls the responsible development of natural resources. 

Alward points out Saskatchewan was in the same boat as New Brunswick a few years ago but has managed to turn things around to the point where there's now a labour shortage.

He says the energy pipeline to Saint John could open the door to other new industries springing up like petrochemicals.
