NB finances

A study by the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council says that New Brunswick’s debt levels are risky and spending should be cut to put it back in the black.

The provincial government debt per person is about 19 thousand dollars.

Opposition Tory leader Blaine Higgs is concerned about the Liberals plan to spend big on infrastructure, like the twinning of a portion of Route 11 between Miramichi and Shediac.
