Davies, Shayne, Canadian Parliamentary Review


The First Session of the 56th Legislature opened on February 6, 2007. This was the first session under the leadership of Premier Shawn Michael Graham (Liberal, Kent), who became New Brunswick's 31st premier after his party secured a majority of seats in the September 18, 2006, provincial election.

On June 7, 1999, he led his party to victory, becoming, at the age of 33, the province's youngest elected Premier. He was re-elected in 2003 and served as Premier for more than seven years.
