The ball is in the premier’s court: Green Party leader looking for action on aging strategy
Fredericton – David Coon, Leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick and MLA for Fredericton South, is pleased to see such strong recommendations in the Council on Aging’s strategy released today.
“The members of the council have done an excellent job building a transformational vision for aging in New Brunswick,” said Coon. “Now the ball is in Premier Gallant’s court to see that these recommendations are implemented in a timely fashion.”
On Tuesday, the government will table its 2017/2018 budget and in the coming weeks, Coon will have the opportunity to question departments about how they will spend money in the coming year.
“The budget should reflect the priorities in the aging strategy,” said Coon.
