A new report by the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies is making what some may consider controversial recommendations on the best way to deal with the New Brunswick debt problem.

Shaun Fantauzzo is a co-author of the research paper. He says, beyond the language situation, New Brunswick has a lot of duplication in its health and education systems. “We recommend looking at that and pursuing a rationalization program similar to Saskatchewan’s in the 1990_s when that province faced bankruptcy”, says Fantauzzo.
