Former Prime Minister Jean Chretien says he wanted to say thank you to New Brunswickers for supporting his bid to win a seat in the Commons back in 1990.
Chretien was keynote speaker at the Liberal fundraiser here in the city last night -- and -- he wasted no time slamming the Harper Tories for attacking Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff for spending 30-years in the U-S.
It's Chretien's first such public speaking engagement since stepping down as federal Liberal leader five-and-a-half years ago.
