I see that NB lost jobs in December. I haven’t had the time to go to the GNB.ca website but one suspects that the press release doesn’t attribute this to the success of self-sufficiency (as has been the case in previous months). However, it is true that after two terrible years, 2007 was a good one on the jobs front.
The echo of the forestry sector decline will set in in 2008, I think. I wonder if that will be attributable to self-sufficiency as well?
