(FREDERICTON, NB) -- On the eve of New Brunswick's general election, Green Party Leader David Coon released the following statement thanking and congratulating all candidates and campaign workers of all political stripes:
I appreciate the tremendous effort that everyone provided to all of the party campaigns, and I want to give an extra 'shout out' to all the candidates and their families.
We can sit back and wonder about the marvel of democracy, and be so thankful that we live in a democratic country as great as Canada. It's times like these when, for a short few weeks, we can see the democratic process in action - through the efforts of our citizens, our candidates and our hundreds and hundreds of volunteers.
Here in Fredericton South, I want to thank all the candidates. We had some feisty debates, and some fun moments together. That so many citizens are participating in tomorrow's election is such a beautiful, positive reflection of our healthy democracy,"
