Surprisingly, Premier Higgs was spending his time today announcing energy investments into SMR nuclear reactor technology along with millions of taxpayer money as subsidies to stakeholders and to the University of New Brunswick, as if they need more taxpayer money beyond the 200 million they receive annually already. It was held via Zoom which has become commonplace with covid lockdowns. He was joined with the premiers of Ontario, Alberta, and Newfoundland.
It would be better if those tax dollars are used to buy urgently needed vaccines for New Brunswickers direct from Pfizer and Moderna. If Ottawa objects or intervenes he should sue the Federal Government for their dismal and incompetent vaccine roll out to New Brunswickers and preventing him from protecting his citizens.
