Premier Brian Gallant is coming under after emails surfaced about his role in fast tracking what turned out to be property tax assessments. Opposition leader Blaine Higgs is calling on the Premier to come clean.
Premier Gallant is calling on Higgs to come clean as well about his role in securing the tax concession back in 2005 for Canaport LNG.
Gallant argues there have been problems with the property tax assessments dating back to 2011 when Higgs was finance minister.
The cities of Moncton, Fredericton and Saint John are in unison, speaking out against the freeze next year on property tax assessments.
M-L-A Pam Lynch says the Premier is in damage control but the Fredericton area has seen a $46 million assessment reduction as a result.
Portland-Simonds M-L-A Trevor Holder says the reduction in Saint John is even higher at $60 million thus far.
