NS wins another one

You have to wonder if NSBI had all these projects in the bag and just staggered their public announcements. There have been I think about eight announcements of projects involving payroll rebates in the past month representing well over 1,400 high paying jobs.

Here’s the latest:

    Good point monctonlandlord, but I also think it comes down to political leadership in that province as well. John Hamm did a fantastic job as premier.

    And no offense to us, but notwithstanding Frank McKenna, Nova Scotia had had better leaders [smarter politicians] on average than New Brunswick.

    Nowhere in our lot of MPs do I see a Peter Mackay, Scott Brison or an Alexa McDonough. How many leadership contenders or leaders have we had recently?? None.

    Don’t get me wrong here, the federal Liberal party works like a machine in this province, but many times we elect MPs that are just slaves [caterers] to that well oiled machine and when it comes down to the crunch, they are not great leaders.

    I guess what it really boils down to is the Liberal party is not the party of NB, but the party of central Canada. And the fact that we have elected so many caterers to that party has led us to take on the “we only deserve scraps” ethos with regards to our province where a few Liberal friends get grants and the rest are left without a voice. At the moment, we are bankrupt of political leaders and if this doesn’t change, then don’t expect the province to either.
