We have heard all kinds of negative reaction to the Gallant government budget which came down on Tuesday, but one group thinks it's just great.

The New Brunswick Federation of Labour is very pleased with the approach the Liberals are taking according to President Patrick Colford.

He says " It's kind of refreshing for the first time in a long time to see a government that is willing to invest in New Brunswickers and grow the economy through investment in New Brunswickers instead of trying to cut their way to prosperity."

The Federation also is pleased to see such a focus on investments in retaining youth in the province and to repatriate those who left.
