Hon. Cathy Rogers
MLA for Moncton South

New Brunswickers are invited to attend upcoming public meetings focused on priorities for the 2017-18 budget.

The nine meetings will be held throughout the province from Nov. 16 to Dec. 5.

Your government is committed to listening and taking the time to consult on what matters most to New Brunswickers. We understand how important creating jobs, growing the economy and securing health care and education are to New Brunswickers and their families. We have made those our priorities, too.

This year’s pre-budget consultation process will again focus on listening to New Brunswickers and identifying future government priorities.

Your government has a plan in place to balance the books by 2020-21 and we are seeing positive results. We are witnessing positive trends that will position New Brunswick for further economic growth. With these consultations, I am looking forward to hearing New Brunswickers’ feedback on our fiscal plan and gathering insight on what they see as priority areas for the 2017-18 budget.

    will make our politicians more accountable, our Parliament more
    accessible, and our voting system more representative. Our plan
    takes bold climate action [5], by embracing the solutions that we
    already know work, encouraging research into those we have yet to
    discover, and increasing the taxes paid by corporate polluters.

    work on behalf of you, your family, and your community. If you would

    Cathy Rogers Public Pre-budget consultations

    Public invited to participate in pre-budget consultations
    Hon. Cathy Rogers
    MLA for Moncton South

    Cathy Rogers hosts 1st pre-budget session, sees clash of ideas
    Opinions on the consultations ranged from worthwhile to worthless
    By Shane Fowler, CBC News Posted: Nov 17, 2016 6:24 AM AT

    Finance Minister Cathy Rogers says giving the public the chance to
    give feedback on how the province spends it’s money is important for
    transparency and gaining new ideas. (Shane Fowler/CBC)

    The Gallant government held the first of nine pre-budget consultations
    in Fredericton Wednesday night and very little was agreed upon.

    The small discussion groups, which included members of the public as
    well as opposition parties, heard that the province should and
    shouldn’t introduce a carbon tax, that schools should close and open,
    and a myriad of views on highway tolls.

    Despite the disagreement Finance Minister Cathy Rogers said she is a
    supporter of the discussion format.

    “I love this format,” said Rogers.

    “It’s important because we need to continue the dialogue and give them
    the opportunity to speak back into government about anything that
    might be different or new because things change. Nothing stays the
    same.”

    More than 70 people attended the two-hour meeting.

    The consultation comes just a day after the government announced the
    provincial deficit is now projected to hit an eight-year low.

    ‘We really didn’t accomplish anything here tonight.’ – Jim Cougle

    Several of the small groups in attendance agreed the province should
    continue to stay the course when it comes to spending, while others
    hoped the return of a balanced budget before the 2020-21 target set by
    the government.

    Rogers said while people are often quick to offer opinions on where to
    spend money, they can also point to where the government should cut.

    “I take that those seriously,” said Rogers.

    “When I hear about simple efficiencies that we might not have
    considered these are very important. So I’m looking forward to what
    we’ll hear going forward.”

    Critical citizens

    There were criticisms about how much the government was spending in some areas.

    Jim Cougle, who represented the group Save NB Now, said education is a
    place where efficiencies can be made,

    “There are apparently 72 schools that should be closed … They are at
    under 50 per cent capacity, there’s no need to keep schools open that
    are half full,” said Cougle.

    Jim Cougle was critical of the public meet and stated he believes the
    gatherings are simply for show and that government isn’t really
    listening. (Shane Fowler)

    Although he attended the meeting, Cougle said he is pessimistic about
    the consultations.

    “Government has never listened. They’re not going to listen,” said Cougle.

    “We really didn’t accomplish anything here tonight.”

    Others were more optimistic about the process.

    Chris George, a student at the University of New Brunswick, said he
    thought the session went really well.

    “I thought it was open, transparent. Gave us an opportunity to have
    feedback. I got to hear people,” said George.

    “That’s the one thing with governance and politics is being able to
    sit down with civil discourse and engage in conversation.”

    Chris George, a University of New Brunswick graduate student, found
    the public talks to be productive and necessary for the province’s
    future. (Shane Fowler/CBC)
    George said the long-term future of the province was the concern most
    discussed in his group.

    “We are looking at 50, or 100 years down the road,” said George.

    “We’re looking at what the earth is telling us, what the climate is
    telling us, industry, the economy. And we want to know how we can
    adapt our ways of living and our lifestyles and cultures to meet our
    needs and the needs of this society.”

    The province will host eight more pre-budget consultations in
    Florenceville, Moncton, Neguac, Balmoral, Bathurst, Edmundston, Saint
    Andrews, before wrapping up in Saint John on Dec. 5.

    To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last
    names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada’s online
    communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities).
    Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.

    One could thing about the Liebranos holding public consultations is
    that people who are barred from the legislative buildings such as
    Chucky Leblanc can meet the sneaky politicians across the street and
    ask questions. Chucky proved that first thing this morning within his
    blog the day after CBC finally admitted knowing of his latest arrest
    by questionable Edmunston cops over a week ago.

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/charles-leblanc-fredericton-police-libel-1.3853481

    Whereas I am also barred from parliamentary properties (2 years before
    Chucky was) and none of Premier Gallant’s minions will even speak to
    me nor answer emails, methinks I will continue with my MO. I will
    answer the Liebranos questions about money in writing byway of an
    email. Then I will publish the aforesaid email within blog about a
    lawsuit against the Crown about the illegal barring of a citizen from
    the most important public buildings of all while on FIVE ballots
    seeking a seat within. I will let the political cards fall where they
    in Canada’s “Have Not Province” as I head back to court to argue the
    Crown in Federal Court.

    Why were they not able to give you the BOTTOM line? Seems like a god
    questions to me. Why would they not take note of every suggestion like
    you gave them? You do have great ideas. They the government should
    hire you as a consultant from time to time. Guess they do not want
    ideas where to cut and save
