Premier Being Tied To Prime Minister And Not In A Good Way

The biennial convention in Saint John over the weekend of provincial Liberals heard party leader Brian Gallant go out of his way to tie Premier David Alward together with Prime Minister Harper. 

Gallant wonders how this relationship is benefiting the province, claiming this close relationship between the Premier and the Prime Minister will result in New Brunswick getting relatively less for health care, research and skills training.

He also calls the TV ad featuring the Premier following the announcement of the Energy East pipeline "Harperesque" by using tax dollars to persuade people what a good job his government is doing and how the provincial economy is turning around. Gallant scoffs at this claim with the quip "We turning the corner into the trenches".
