Full House In Saint John Hears From Provincial Liberal Leader

Provincial Liberal Leader Brian Gallant speaking at the party's biennial convention in the city and vowing to make promises he can keep after accusing Premier David Alward of breaking most of his. 

Gallant says the Alward Government's record on job creation has been abysmal with New Brunswick having the dubious distinction during the summer of having the highest unemployment rate of any province and losing jobs since the Premier assumed office.

Gallant also coming out in support of the Energy East pipeline from Alberta to Saint John but adds there has to be a plan in place to maximise benefits. 

In response to criticism from the NDP, Gallant says the Liberals will vote against switching the provincial pension plan over to the shared risk model.
