    Why stop at 2000 to 2005? I’m sure it was well below the national average before then. Is that is the Liberals dirty little secret?

    This problem will never be [solved] until ppl around here stop playing petty partisan games with this issue. I have heard here before that politics should never come into play when solving the economic woes of the maritimes. However, ppl tend to surprise me.

    For one thing, the data (if you look at it) is organized in 2000-2005 increments. For another, it is right and non-partisan to look at the recent history and make objective judgements. You are free to defend the record of the Lord Tories, but there is very little data (here or otherwise) to back it up. However, you are correct in saying this problem has been a long time coming (as this data shows nicely).

    I’m neither defending nor criticizing the Lord Tories record on the economy. However, when it comes to the economy, what I am saying is that all former governing provincial parties and MPs have had a hand in our province’s downfall, including McKenna.
