Brian Gallant Liberals and the Reign of T (error)

By Doug Harrison @DonkeyPurple

New Brunswick’s former Premier, Liberal leader Brian Gallant has informed his caucus of his intention to step down from the Party’s top job.

He will make the formal announcement later this morning but will remain at the helm until the Party selects a new leader.

Therein lies the fly in the ointment.

Should the precarious PC minority cobbled together by Blaine Higgs fall, the Liberals could find themselves going into another Election campaign with Gallant as the face of the Party.

That would be a huge mistake

The recent election saw the Liberal Party almost wiped off the map in southern ridings and Gallant’s leadership style was largely the reason.

It would be foolhardy for them to assume all is forgiven and follow their severely damaged Leader to the polls when the wounds from his reign of (t)error are still open and not likely to heal soon.

COMMENT: Brian Gallant's First Budget: The Wrong Direction for New Brunswick

 

 

Brian Gallant has failed to live up to the Liberal commitment to move New Brunswick forward, yet again saying one thing but doing another.  This budget moves New Brunswick in the wrong direction - backward.
