“I think they should vote for me because I care about this place. We have a government in place that has set out initiatives for a better future for the province. In terms of the political history of this province, we’ve only held power for five per cent of the time. I think we’ve shone a bright light on every department. We’re just in the early stages, but I think we can use resources better.”
