The People’s Alliance is calling the motion “undemocratic” and “not the mandate of a municipal council to dictate which political party can represent its constituents.” https://t.co/eJ2YbQeJdV

The Village Council in Cap-Pelé have passed a resolution stating that they will take legal action if the party in power in the province forms a government with the People’s Alliance. Council says that they passed the motion because of the Alliance Party’s stance on language issues. People’s Alliance leader Kris Austin says the motion is “undemocratic” and he thinks “a lot of it is not understanding our policies or maybe there’s some political maneuvering, some fear-mongering involved.”
Meanwile the recounts happening now might last through the long weekend…and in addition to the recounts in Memramcook-Tantramar and Saint John Harbour another riding has been added to the list…votes cast in the riding of Oromocto-Lincoln-Fredericton, a seat the Tories won by 93 votes, will be recounted beginning today.
