Ministers in New Brunswick government to post priorities, roles online

FREDERICTON - The New Brunswick government says it's trying to make it easier for the public to find out what the roles are for each provincial minister.

For the first time, the provincial government has made mandate letters available online.

The letters outline specific priorities that each cabinet member and their departments will focus on.

Premier Brian Gallant says they also include a directive to publish expenses in a timely manner.
