When will we all be moving to Cape Breton? new jobs with the paper mill with only one machine running, and the NS Gov't. pumping in more millions, thanks taxpayers, and guess who will pump up the deficit pension fund? does this scene seem familiar? it's the way we do business in NS, get foreign companies to come here for the free Gov't. money, close the plant, then pump in billions to TRY and keep it running, then they pack up and leave in 2 years, it's the Nova Scotia way, and if you want a job building ships, wait for a couple of years if they ever get started and hope you are a welder, if not good luck,. if you want steady, high paid work, go to one of the 11(too many) accredited universities,( in the second smallest province eh?) snap up one of those golden positions and wonder where your tax dollars go.By the way who is the largest employer in Nova Scotia---could it be the Government? that earns no money and it's main function is ONLY to spend money, forget Alberta, glom on to public service job like everyone else and you too can spend winters in Florida with the rest of the maritimers.
