Cornwall ON – The Liberal government in New Brunswick showed what flip flopping can get you as they were swept out of power by the David Alward led Conservatives.
The Conservatives won 42 of 55 seats with 49% of the vote. Many Liberal ministers lost their seats as well. The NDP had 10% of the vote and the Green Party, running for the first time pulled in 5%. Neither party won a seat.
Shawn Graham’s Liberals paid a huge price over the deal to sell the provincial power grid to Hydro Quebec; a deal that succumbed under public pressure.
Mr. Graham’s promises of 20,000 jobs for the province and computers for students didn’t dent public opinion and he isn’t expected to remain as party leader.
What do you think? How will this election impact Federal politics?
