Leaders debate

Liberal leader Stephen McNeil fended off multiple attacks on his record last night as the major-party leaders clashed during a leaders debate on CBC.

Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie and the N-D-P’s Gary Burrill targeted McNeil’s broken promises on doctors, other healthcare issues. They criticized what they called his penny-pinching, top-down style with teachers and other government unions.

McNeil dismissed the criticisms pointing to his achievements while in office.
