New Brunswick: A wee bit of good news for Liberals

Last night there was a by-election in the provincial riding of Moncton East, recently vacated by the resignation of former Conservative Premier Bernard Lord. The Liberal candidate, Chris Collins easily won, by a margin of about 1,000 votes. This should make life easier for the provincial Liberals, who are now up by a margin of 30-25 in the provincial legislature.

Premier Shawn Graham seems to be enjoying a bit of a honeymoon with the voters here. His federal counterpart must be jealous. Of course, I don't think that there has been a cabal of journalists in the province taking shots at Graham's French, just for sport, either.
