Just a quick disclaimer about the piece on CBC radio this morning. I am not suggesting that Premier Hatfield was a great supporter of economic development or even that the Bricklin project was a good one, per se. I am just stating that it was a bold attempt to do something, anything to create new jobs and new industries in the province.
I’ll leave the full critique of Premier Hatfield and Bricklin to those that were there (I was a eight when the Bricklin deal went south).
I hope I got you thinking a bit about this stuff.
