A Conservative government will take power.
Yet another Liberal government has fallen.
The New Brunswick Liberal government led by Brian Gallant has been defeated in a confidence vote.
In a 25-23 vote, the New Brunswick House supported a motion by the PC party that said there was no confidence in the Liberal government.
The PCs, along with the support of the small People’s Alliance party voted in favour of the motion, meaning the Liberal government has fallen.
After the vote, Gallant said he would go to the Lieutenant Governor to ask for Conservative Leader Blaine Higgs to be given a chance to test confidence of the House.
Higgs and the Conservatives have the votes alongside the People’s Alliance to pass a confidence motion, meaning another Liberal government will be replaced by a Conservative government.
The defeat of the NB Liberals follows huge Liberal losses in Ontario and Quebec, where Centre-right governments decisively defeated Liberals aligned with the federal Trudeau Liberals.
