Opposition claims Premier manipulating voters

The opposition is accusing Premier Stephen McNeil of playing political games when it comes to the Acadian riding boundaries.

The Premier refuses to rule out calling an election before new boundaries are set.

Opposition Leader Jamie Baillie notes the budget will be tabled about three weeks later than usual which has led to speculation by some that the Premier will table it, then call and election and run on the budget. He accuses McNeil of manipulating the public.
