New Brunswick Liberals choose new executive at virtual biennial meeting

FREDERICTON - The New Brunswick Liberal party has chosen a new executive as 1,100 members took part in a virtual biennial meeting today.

Former Moncton mayor and MP Brian Murphy has been elected the new party president.

Murphy says during the last provincial election the party did well in francophone ridings and not well in anglophone areas.

He says the party needs to improve organization, policy and unity.

Murphy says the party will look to a number of methods, including social media, to get their message out to attract young voters.

The party has not set a date for a leadership convention to replace Kevin Vickers, who quit after failing to win a seat in last year’s provincial election.
