Conservatives Claim Saint John Is Big Loser From Cabinet Shuffle

The provincial Conservatives say Premier Brian Gallant is in political trouble in Saint John and that's why he made himself the Regional Minister for Saint John according to M-L-A Glen Savoie of Saint John East.

Savoie claims Saint John Harbour M-L-A Dr. Ed Doherty was made a scapegoat for the property tax debacle because it was the Premier who was responsible for fast tracking a new system for assessing properties that went off the rails.

Saint John Lancaster M-L-A Dorothy Shephard says the departure of Doherty from the cabinet leaves the city without locally elected representation at the cabinet table.
