For those of you that follow such things, you know that the selection of the Minister in charge of ACOA can be a contentious issue. Will he/she be from Nova Scotia? New Brunswick? PEI? Newfoundland?
I have heard from two sources that the new ACOA minister will be from Western Canada.
That should solve the fighting between Atl. Provinces alright.
This could easily be done if the Minister was put in charge of all the regional development agencies (FedNor, ACOA, CED, WED). Maybe we’ll get another DREE?
Anybody have any insight into this?
