  1. Great news but it hurts to see that -3.0% in Saint John. Hopefully that will turn around in 2012.

    This stat is very misleading. Saint John has a lower unemployment rate than Moncton. This simply takes SJ at a time when it was record low and compares it to now when it is higher but still lower than the National average, lol.
