Day Ten: Assigned Readings

Just because it's the weekend doesn't mean you're off the hook.

The CBC reports that the Environmental Network conducted a survey of the five parties contesting the New Brunswick election, and graded them on their environmental platforms. Shockingly, the Greens got a 100% score. The People's Alliance got 64%, the New Democrats 61%, and the Progressive Conservatives got 55%. The Liberals got 0%, because they are truant. Bad attendance! Detention!

The Telegraph-Journal reports that the Liberals will increase New Brunswick's population by 12,000 people by 2014. How, you ask? Let's just say Shawn Graham has a lot of work ahead of him. (Actually, they'll do it through immigration and encouraging New Brunswick's youth to stay.)

Another handy rundown from the Times & Transcript of yesterday's campaign promises.

And a "best of luck" to all my Maritime readers in the path of Earl.
