FREDERICTON (CNB) - Premier Shawn Graham will answer New Brunswickers' questions about the proposed agreement with Hydro-Québec in a televised, year-end address on Rogers TV Cable 9 and 10.

"During the past few weeks, many New Brunswickers have asked a number of legitimate questions about the proposed agreement on NB Power, and we want to make sure these questions have answers," said Graham. "I hope all New Brunswickers who are looking for more information about the proposed agreement will take the time to watch this address."

The address will air throughout the province for the first time on Rogers TV on Monday, Dec. 21. On English stations an English address will air at 6 p.m., followed by a French address at 6:15 p.m.; on French stations, a French address will air at 6 p.m. followed by an English address at 6:15 p.m.

"Our province has made significant steps toward self-sufficiency in the past three years," said Graham. "This proposed agreement would be the biggest single step we've ever taken toward self-sufficiency. It will give us the tools to grow our economy and eliminate the risks in our way as we work to create jobs by seizing opportunities, creating the best opportunities to learn, and creating equal opportunity for access to quality health and senior care - the opportunities we need today to achieve self-sufficiency tomorrow."
