About this Riding
The Greens had their first breakthrough in the Maritimes back in 2014, when David Coon won the provincial party’s first seat in that year’s New Brunswick election. He then expanded his party’s caucus to three seats in 2018, winning his own Fredericton South seat by a huge margin. That might give the federal Greens the base they need to win the Fredericton riding. At the very least, it will complicate the electoral dynamics in this seat, which elected a Liberal in 2015 but went Conservative in both the 2008 and 2011 elections. Will strategic progressive voters back the Liberals or the Greens, or will the two parties split the vote to the benefit of the Conservatives?
