Job creation promises – more NB than salmon and fiddleheads

During the provincial election of 1982, all the political parties promised impressive job creation plans.The Conservatives promised 35,000 by 1986, the Liberals 20,000 by the end of 1983, and the NDP 17,000 (According to Richard Wilbur’s annual review of New Brunswick for that year).  There were just under 3,000 net new jobs by the end of 1983. and a better but no where near the target 22,000 new jobs by the end of 1986.
