NB Green Party launches 'Budget with a Heart' tour
New Brunswick's Green Party wants to know how the province can put people's well-being at the heart of its budget.
David Coon's 'Budget with a Heart' tour is slated to stop in fourteen New Brunswick communities beginning on Tuesday.
Coon says the well-being of New Brunswickers needs to be at the heart of the provincial budget and can't simply be a hopeful result of economic growth and debt reduction.
