2008-2009 Speech from the ThroneSpeech from the throne
2008-2009

Keeping commitments, carefully managing through the current economic downturn, and a renewed focus on and commitment to achieving self-sufficiency were the primary themes of today’s speech from the throne that opened the third session of the 56th Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick.

“This combination of reduced revenue growth and increased spending clearly represents a serious challenge for your government.” This reality will, more than ever, require that your government remains focused on the most important priorities for all New Brunswickers.

There is no question that difficult decisions will be required going forward to keep expenditures under control and to focus on results that support government’s self-sufficiency agenda.”

 

- Herménégilde Chiasson
Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick
