Ceutorhynchus oregonensis Dietz
Bob Anderson has identified this as Ceutorhynchus oregonensis Dietz (it stumped me), a very nice find indeed. This is the first record from New Brunswick, and there are only two records from Nova Scotia. It's discovery in NS (it is also found in QC) was surprising since this is an otherwise western species of weevil. It is associated with Rorippa palustris. See the following (pp. 407-408) for further information:

Majka, C.G., Anderson, R.S., and McCorquodale, D.B. 2007. The weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) of the Maritime Provinces of Canada, II: new records from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and regional zoogeography. The Canadian Entomologist 139: 397-442.

hope it's a local species... looks nice
