Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the new MLA-elect to the New Brunswick riding of Tracadie on his truly decisive victory during the by-election on September 27.
The provincial riding of Tracadie resides in the federal riding of Acadie-Bathurst. This seat has traditionally been a Liberal stronghold for 82 years. The provincial Liberals have called the seat their rock of Gibraltar.
The margin of victory, 1,364 votes, is clearly an incredible win for the Conservative Party. The people defeated the provincial Liberals because they have not improved the economy, their policies are hurting our job creation and they are just not listening. The people have spoken and have said enough is enough.
The Conservative Party is alive and well in New Brunswick and the rock of Gibraltar has fallen.
