The People’s Alliance Of NB Wish To Privatize NB Liquor and Cannabis NB
As the president and CEO of the Crown Corporation, Brian Harriman prepares to retire, the People's Alliance of New Brunswick is wanting to privatize NB Liquor and Cannabis NB.
According to the People's Alliance Party website, a statement was made by Kris Austin, PANB leader, who said the government will stand to gain far more than it loses if the privatization process is done correctly.
Austin also said that the money could go into a general revenue fund in order to inject resources into senior care, education, and healthcare.
He added that the government has manifested, in the past, that it is not skilled at running businesses as he pointed to staggering losses Cannabis NB has seen in its first few months of operation.
Should the government allow the privatization of Cannabis NB and NB Liquor, or not?
