Why focus on Canadian industry? Here is my theory.

US businesses do not want to come to Massena because of a strong union presence. They do not want to come here because they will not get generous favors or incentives which are union motivated. They want to get Canadian business so those businesses can join an organized labor union. Why do they say "select companies" ? At this point anything is better than what we have been getting. Jason, you said out of your own mouth that the Promo Video for Massena would be done by the end of the summer. Where is it? You asked for more money for it in your budget request and you have plenty of money in your reserves to pay for it. The state said they needed to be more transparent in their presence on the web. Where is that? What has the BDC done for Massena in 2011. Created 1 job in Jason's office and put 13k worth of trash cans and park benches on main street. Snail mail marketing is good but we are in the 21st century. Whatever is in that packet can also be transposed to the world wide web. They are not using every available resource to market Massena. From what this article say's, it will buy them another year of doing very little. It's really depressing.

The BDC's strategy should start with replacing Jason.
