New Brunswick residents are heading to the polls on September 14 after a snap election call from Premier Blaine Higgs.
The New Brunswick Progressive Conservative Leader called the election Monday after failing to secure a stability agreement among the opposition parties in the province’s legislature.
Higgs had pitched the power-sharing agreement as a deal that would ensure the Tory government survived until the next fixed election date in October 2022 or the novel coronavirus pandemic ran its course.
It will be the first provincial general election to be held during the COVID-19 pandemic.
