#NBVotes2018 (UPDATED 4AM)
The election might be over but the drama isn’t…The PC’s got 22 seats and the Liberals 21…you need 25 seats in New Brunswick for a majority…but Brian Gallant says he’s going to try to hang on to power with the help of one of the other parties…the People’s Alliance and The Greens each got 3 seats….and PC Leader Blaine Higgs says his party has the mosts seats…and that both he and Gallant will be lined up at the Lt Governor’s place this morning trying to sell a plan to govern.
The numbers could change too…there were two ridings decided by less than 25 votes which triggers an automatic recount…The Green party’s Megan Mitton was elected Memramcook Tantramar by 11 votes…and the Saint John Harbour riding went Liberal by 10 votes. Three other ridings were decided by less than 100 votes and parties can ask for a recount in those cases…
Here are the official numbers from Elections NB…
The PCs have 22 seats, the Liberals have 21, the Peoples Alliance and Greens each have 3. Just over 67% voter turnout by the way…
Leaders Brian Gallant (L), Blaine Higgs (PC), David Coon (G), & Kris Austin (PA) have all been elected in their ridings.

University students will be allowed to get high on campus – as long as the cannabis is eaten, rather than smoked. UNB, St. Thomas and Mount Allison will allow students to consume edibles in their residence dorms once the substance becomes legal on Oct. 17. A spokesman from St Thomas said “Residence will be non-smoking… but edibles will be legal as long as you’re 19.
