Step right up. On tonight’s card, former PC Premier Hatfield goes up against current PC Premier Lord. The contest? Net inter-provincial migration.
The winner? A first round knockout. There was a net in-migration of 15,000 people in Hatfield’s first five full years in office. There has been a net out-migration of 5,600 people in Lord’s first full five years.
How about immigration? Over 9,000 immigrants in the first five years of Hatfield’s tenure. Just 3,700 in Lord’s first five years.
I think the Lord should dust off Hatfield’s playbook.
