NB Green Party launches 'Budget with a Heart' tour

Green Party of New Brunswick leader

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.
