New Brunswick Election 2020 – Blaine Higgs Victory Speech

Blaine Higgs, leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of New Brunswick, addresses supporters in his riding of Quispamsis. His party is expected to form a majority government, while the Liberal party will assume the role of official opposition in the New Brunswick legislative assembly. Higgs called a snap election on August 17 after failing to secure an agreement as premier with the opposition parties that aimed to avoid an election. New Brunswick was the first province to hold a general election amid the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. (September 14, 2020)
