PC Leader Blaine Higgs says the announcement that Premier Brian Gallant is now the Regional Minister for the Saint John region should not come as a surprise to anyone.
During a speech to the Saint John Rotary this week Higgs told the audience it’s a clear sign the Liberals are struggling in the region.
He says is it an election office for announcements to come over the next 12 months,? or is it something serious?
Higgs says if it is serious then it’s a little late in coming.
Higgs says he knows former Energy Minister Jack Keir has been working on the 2018 election strategy for about a year and a half and bringing Gallant to Saint John is likely part of that strategy.
