Premier David Alward announced on Wednesday that Martine Coulombe, the Post-Secondary Education Minister, was replaced by Danny Soucy. Coulombe is the only minister to be replaced. She was known for opposing the two-tier wage system in New Brunswick, which never happened. She also was a part of controversial discussions around employment insurance reform.
Members of the St. Thomas University Student’s Union will meet with Soucy later this month. He has represented Grand Falls-Drummond-Saint André since 2010.
“It’s most certainly too early to give a perspective on the new PETL minister. However, I have met Danny in person before, and I have no complaints as of late,” vice-president of education, Alex Driscoll said in an email.
The changes come into effect Oct. 9th.
