New Anti-Poverty Initiatives To Be Announced

Stay tuned........Premier David Alward says he'll be announcing in a matter of days phase two of the strategy to combat poverty after consultations that have taken place over the past year. 

Phase One happened under the previous Liberal government after a wide ranging roundtable discussion a few years ago in Market Square when Shawn Graham was Premier and Alward was Opposition Leader. 

Saint John Portland M-L-A Trevor Holder tells CHSJ News he's proud of what he has done in public office to tackle poverty and that's why he fought so hard to get the new "Y" built in Crescent Valley which the Premier predicts will change that part of the city for a lifetime.
