Conservatives Hammer Liberals As Reckless Spenders

A theme is emerging as the Conservatives campaign for the September 22nd provincial election as they accuse the Liberals of having no plan for economic development. 

They denounce their call for a moratorium on shale gas development as a moratorium on jobs and Provincial Health Minister Ted Flemming says they have a record of being reckless spenders, judging by the previous government.

That's being echoed by fellow cabinet member Trevor Holder of Saint John Portland who says the Liberals spent money like drunken sailors when they last were in office.

According to Flemming, the Alward Government, when it took office after the last provincial election, found itself saddled with a projected deficit of 968 million dollars.
