Cardy applauds Liberal decision to cut pay of Premier and Cabinet

FREDERICTON – NDP Leader Dominic Cardy has expressed his support for Premier Gallant’s announcement of pay reductions for Cabinet.

“While this is a largely symbolic move, it’s an important one and at a time when this government is asking New Brunswickers to brace themselves for tough fiscal choices ahead,” Cardy said. “It is definitely an effort that I can applaud.”

“As a province, we need to start making the difficult decisions,” Cardy said. “It will take a combined effort and today it is nice to see some movement from the top.”

“I look forward to the dialogue on these decisions in the coming months and years,” Cardy said. “And as I’ve pledged before, the NDP is ready and willing to help whatever we can.”
