Premier Brian Gallant met with the lieutenant-governor yesterday where he says he was told he can recall the legislature to try and win the confidence of the house — maybe by getting together with a third party — and remain in power. Gallant says nobody was given a mandate to govern in Monday’s provincial election, and also said his Liberals won the popular vote.
Meanwhile…The PC’s won 22 seats — one more than the Liberals…and Blaine Higgs says Premier Gallant is just delaying the inevitable by trying to cling to power. He says his P-C’s have been given a mandate to govern and he is waiting for recounts in close races before moving forward on a transition of power.
Some political experts are predicting that we could have another election called by Christmas…
Gas prices are supposed to go UP by about a cent tonight. Experts also say that diesel & furnace oil are heading up a cent. Regular self serve has been selling for just under $1.25 at most places around the city this week.

Codiac RCMP is asking help identifying & locating three suspects in a home invasion at an apartment in Moncton. This happened early Sunday morning…about 1:25 a.m…police responded to a High Street residence following a report of a home invasion and robbery. Investigators believe three men entered the home, assaulted the occupants with a weapon and stole property from the residence. The suspects got away, crossing John Street before travelling towards Dominion Street, that’s where they were last seen. The men are described as being between 5’9″ and 6’3″ tall, with medium builds. All three were dressed in dark clothing with masks covering their faces. They spoke English without accents.
Anyone with information about this home invasion and robbery, or who may have seen anyone fitting the description of the suspects in the area at the time of the incident is asked to contact Codiac Regional RCMP at 506-857-2400.
