June 12, 2024News

Fredericton, NB (June 12, 2024) — Last week the Child, Youth and Seniors Advocate released a report with the findings of his investigation into the petition initiated by the Member for Kent North, Mr. Kevin Arseneau. The report concludes that there is no evidence of any wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse towards any senior or vulnerable adult by any member of the Legislative Assembly or any leader or agent of any registered political party.


Hannah Fulton Johnston, Executive Director of the New Brunswick Liberal Party, expressed satisfaction with the report’s conclusions, “We are very pleased with the Advocate’s thorough investigation and the findings of the report. We are committed to ensuring that all party processes are conducted with the utmost  integrity and transparency, and this report confirms that standard was upheld.”


The petition, which raised concerns regarding the registration process of residents at Foyer Chez Annie, has been thoroughly reviewed. The Advocate’s findings highlight that while there were procedural gaps in how the facility approached resident registrations, there was no evidence of systemic wrongdoing or benefit derived from any erroneous registrations.


“I commend the Advocate’s office for their detailed and transparent review. This report reinforces our confidence in the processes and the dedication of those who support our democratic engagements,” said Susan Holt, Leader of the New Brunswick Liberal Party.


The New Brunswick Liberal Party remains committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct and safeguarding the rights and interests of all citizens, particularly vulnerable groups.
