PC’s Kathy Bockus wins the Saint Croix seat in the 2020 election.
The 2013 redistricting process saw the riding of Charlotte-Campobello, with the addition of the McAdam area, be renamed to Saint Croix.
This riding will not have an incumbent. Greg Thompson, who won the riding for the Progressive Conservatives in 2018, died at the age of 72 in September 2019.
The former MP was a longtime representative for New Brunswick and was serving as the province’s minister of intergovernmental affairs when he passed away.
The seat has remained empty since Thompson’s death.
Liberal: John Gardner
Was removed as the Liberal candidate after offensive Facebook posts came to light. However, will remain on the ballot as a Liberal as the removal came after ballots were printed.
Progressive Conservative: Kathy Bockus
NDP: Brad McKinney
