Tomorrow is a bright day for New Brunswick

On Tuesday, October 3, 2006, New Brunswick will have a new government.

Shawn Graham and his cabinet will be sworn-in at 10 a.m. The 55 MLAs will be sworn-in at 2 p.m. Both of these events will be televised on the legislature channel on Rogers and webcast here.

I am very much looking forward to how things unfold. A lot of people have their doubts about Shawn Graham, but I believe he is a sincere man whose heart is in the right place.

Bernard Lord's reign over New Brunswick has taken a province that spent the 90s exceeding expectations and turned it into a stagnant backwater. I was sad to see my province reach the peak of such tremendous promise only to unravel from 1999 to 2006.

I hope the Shawn Graham Liberal govenrment can restore confidence and direction to New Brunswick. I hope they don't let me down. I wish them the best of luck.

Bernard Lord not only took the province in backwaters but also he failed miserably on social issues and issues of compassion such as seniors, disabled and poor. He became a legend in his own mind after 1999 election and forgot that he was supposed to govern the province too besides winning an election. I sincerely hope Shawn Graham restores the confidence in our government. I am looking forward to it.
